BAA responds to Government consultation on airport regulation BAA has submitted its response to the Department for Transports (DfT) consultation proposals in relation to the on-going review of the economic regulation of UK airports.
The review of UK airports regulation is important, particularly in the context of the UKs ability to emerge from global recession with the infrastructure needed to compete internationally. Nobody doubts that a regulatory system put together in the 1980s must be modernised and we take heart from the consensus that has emerged during the consultation process around the need for continuous improvement of customer service, the facilitation of sustained investment in airport infrastructure and environmental responsibility. These three themes must underpin any new regulatory framework, if the needs of passengers today and in the future are to be met.
