BAA 2010 traffic down, OMA traffic recovers slowly


Traffic at BAA, a unit of Ferrovial, was down 2.8% in 2010, with the ash cloud crisis, strikes, a slow economic recovery in the UK and poor winter weather all contributing to the poor result.

Traffic at London Heathrow was down 9.5% in Dec-2010, with the severe weather estimated to have cost BAA GBP24 million. The airport operator has pledged to spend GBP10 million on new snow equipment.
