Press Release   •   Dec 21, 2009 12:10 GMT

“It is not right for one company to run more than one airport in London," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Transport Secretary.

Commenting on BAA’s successful appeal against a Competition Commission ruling to force it to sell three of the seven UK airports it runs, Norman Baker said:

“This is bad news for passengers. They are the ones who suffer when one company has a stranglehold over the UK’s airports.

“It is not right for one company to run more than one airport in London and both Glasgow and Edinburgh airports.”
