Ryanair to reduce London Stansted traffic by 9%

Ryanair announced (28-Feb-2013) plans to reduce its London Stansted Airport traffic by 9% over the coming year from 12.5 million to 11.4 million. The airline's move came following Ferrovial and BAA announced 6% increase in fees from Apr-2013 despite Ferrovial and BAA selling London Stansted Airport to Manchester Airport Group (MAG). MAG is to take over the airport by the end of Mar-2013. Ryanair called on the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to investigate the charge and called on Ferrovial and BAA to reverse the price increase. [more - original PR]
