Mr Johnson rounded on the Prime Minister and the Coalition which has refused to consider expanding Heathrow as well as vetoing proposals for new runways at Gatwick and Stansted.
Having earlier pushed for the building of a new airport in the Thames Estuary, Mr Johnson called for a second runway at Stansted to be built as a short term fix.
He also said that £14.8 billion Crossrail scheme, which will link the City to Heathrow, should be extended to Stansted.
“It would be a good interim solution,” he said. “A lot of money is now moving on to Stansted and the possibility of a high-speed rail link up there. You could be just as fast, if not faster, than at Heathrow.
”I think it is time that we looked at all the options around London because the Heathrow option is politically undeliverable and would be an environmental disaster.
