Report Highlights Need for More Competition Between UK Airports

Folkestone, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 02, 2009 -- A recent report from the UK Competition Commission recommended that BAA (the British Airports Authority) sell two airports that they operate, namely Heathrow and Gatwick Aiport. In the view of the commission, many of the issues with the level of service at these airports, especially Heathrow, were related to BAA's common ownership.

It has already been suggested that BAA will sell off both Stansted and Gatwick Airports along with either Edinburgh or Glasgow Airports in Scotland. The sale is intended to bring benefits to both passengers and airlines as the new airport operators will be inclined toward developing the airports as effective competitors. Under new ownership the airports will have a far greater incentive to be more responsive to the needs of both passengers and airlines.

Clearly, the change in ownership should be good for customers. Travel services comparison site is a great example of an online business that places the interests and needs of travellers first.
