Competition Commission lays down the law on BAA airport sales. BAA questions 'flawed analysis'

As anticipated, the UK's Competition Commission (CC), which has been involved in a two-year long study into airport operating standards and competition issues in the southeast of England and in Scotland, finally recommended that not only should BAA/Ferrovial sell London's Gatwick Airport, already a work in progress, but that it should also sell London Stansted and one airport in Scotland, either Edinburgh or Glasgow. BAA stated it would consider appealing against the decision on the basis of 'flawed analysis' and the impracticalities of selling three airports in difficult economic conditions.
