BAA Response To CAA Price Proposals For Stansted Q5

09 Dec 2008

A spokesman for BAA said:

"Government and regulators agree that new runway capacity is required in the South East of England, to relieve pressure on airports and to provide better service to passengers and airlines. It should follow that the full cost of bringing forward that new capacity is reflected in the regulatory framework.

"While the CAA is supporting the cost of the second runway planning application, we are disappointed that a significant element of our spend to date has been disallowed. We will continue to press for a regulatory framework which reflects the full cost of bringing forward the second runway proposals at Stansted."
