I propose that Thames Hub Airport be merged into London Britannia Airport. I think that the content in this article is covering the same as in the LBA page. Since LBA is the official working name, I think that this should be moved into the LBA page. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 12:15, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. Bondegezou (talk) 15:14, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
I don't think Thames Hub Airport and London Britannia Airport are actually the same proposal. Thames Hub Airport is a proposal put forward by Foster & Partners ([1]). London Britannia Airport is a proposal put forward by TESTRAD ([2]). The Thames Hub proposal was originally made in 2011 by Lord Foster ([3]). The London Britannia proposal was originally made in 2012 under the name "London Jubilee International Airport" ([4]) and was only recently renamed to London Britannia Airport. Testrad was founded by Doug Oakervee (formerly of Crossrail), whereas Foster & Partners was founded by Lord Foster. Both are proposals for a Thames Estuary Airport of which there have been several such dating back to the 1970s. I don't think they should share an article, but they should probably both be referenced from the article on Thames Estuary Airport to give the context as to how they relate to each other.

Here is a list of the proposals submitted to the Airport Commission: List of long-term proposals received by Airports Commission. Can we now close this merger proposal? Kidburla (talk) 23:09, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
London Britannia Airport should not be merged with the Thames Estuary Hub page. London Britannia Airport is the only current Estuary airport proposal put forward for the Davies Commission. It is distinctly different from the other land based proposal by Fosters and Partners on the Isle of Grain which is not based on the water but in close proximity to the Estuary. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AnnaCRobinson (talkcontribs) 13:13, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
