BAA likely to fight Competition Commission's order

BAA could seek a judicial review if the UK Competition Commission forces it to sell London Stansted and one of either Glasgow and Edinburgh airport assets, a decision which is widely expected (The Guardian, 18-Jul-2011). BAA believes market conditions have changed since the Competition Commission ordered the sale of Stansted. The commission indicated early in Jul-2011 in a preliminary review of a 2009 ruling that it was still minded to order the forced divestments in order to increase competition in the airport market in south-east England and Scotland.
