HC Deb 29 January 1931 vol 247 c1169W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air the names of the aerodromes in this country regularly used for passenger carrying services; and whether in all cases reports as to weather over the prospective route are available to travellers by air independently of the, companies engaged in the traffic?


The air ports at Croydon and Lympne are the only aerodromes used throughout the year for the operation of regular passenger services. At both of these reports of weather conditions on the routes to the Continent, received through the Meteorological Department of the Air Ministry, are posted up for the information of passengers. I may add that in the case of any other civil aircraft proceeding abroad (which would in all cases be from one or other of the various Customs aerodromes) the latest weather report for the route is always obtainable.
