BAA confirms application to Competition Appeals Tribunal

Press releases

BAA today confirmed that it is applying to the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) to review the Report of the Competition Commission on two separate grounds. The first ground is that the Report is affected by apparent bias. This is because of links between a member of the Competition Commission panel and an organisation interested in acquiring the airports that BAA is required to sell. BAA will also appeal on the grounds that the Competition Commission failed to take into account the adverse financial impact of introducing competition, in particular by requiring BAA to sell three airports within two years in the current financial and economic circumstances. The CAT will publish a notice on its website summarising the appeal in the next few days. The Gatwick sale process continues, and we will make a further announcement at the appropriate time.
