BAA Response To Competition Commission's Stansted Q5 Recommendations

04 Nov 2008

A spokesman for BAA said:

"We are disappointed that the Competition Commission has failed to reflect large elements of the costs involved in operating Stansted Airport over the next five years and beyond. While the CC supports BAA's development proposal for the second runway (Stansted Generation 2), it is important that regulators fully consider the cost of taking such ambitious proposals from the drawing board to reality. We continue to believe that SG2 is a sound project which will begin to address the shortage of runway capacity so often cited as a problem by organisations such as the CAA, the CC and Government and look forward to continued discussions with the CAA.
