The Campaign Community

Follow us on Twitter @AirportWatch                 .         AirportWatch on Facebook 

The following list is by no means complete – there are many groups and individuals
resisting airport expansion in the UK.  Some of the groups go into hibernation after a while, until a new threat presents itself.  Contact us to find out about active groups
in your area.  Groups in North America also listed below.

Some of the airport campaign websites are excellent sources of technical information
as well as providing local news on airport expansion plans and campaign actions.


Local UK airport groups include:
