After being denied permission to build a new passenger terminal at Coventry Airport, officials plan to appeal the ruling made by a public inquiry to continue with plans for the new terminal that would be capable of handling 2 million passengers a year. A spokesman for the airport said, 'We are waiting for an appeal date for the High Court, though we have been warned that it can take up to 12 months. We believe that the outcome of the first inquiry was seriously flawed in law. If we can have a second inquiry, new evidence will be allowed to be heard.' Part of the airport's case is that the current passenger terminal was actually never meant to be a permanent structure, thus the plans to build a new one are in check with the original plans of Coventry Airport. Alan Robinson, the chief executive of the airport says that aside from handling more passenger turnover per annum, the new terminal would bring a great deal of employment, both during and after the construction.
