Inflation-busting rise in airport charges gets go-ahead

Graeme Wearden Tuesday March 11 2008

Passengers will pay more to fly in and out of London's largest airports following the Civil Aviation Authority's decision today to allow inflation-busting increases in charges at Heathrow and Gatwick over the next five years.
The CAA's ruling, which has angered airlines, means BAA can charge £12.80 per Heathrow passenger in 2008/09, up from £10.36 this year - a 23.5% rise. It will then be allowed to hike the charge by up to 7.5% more than the retail prices index over the following four years.
