The aim of the new aviation strategy is to achieve a safe, secure and sustainable aviation sector that meets the needs of consumers and of a global, outward-looking Britain.

We sought views on the aviation strategy from industry, business, consumers, environmental groups and anyone with an interest in aviation.

The next steps document outlines our 6 key objectives for the strategy, challenges ahead and actions the government is considering to address these.

We will hold a consultation on the policy detail for all 6 of the strategy objectives later this year, leading to the publication of a final aviation strategy in 2019.
