The UK’s Competition Commission (CC) published provisional findings on its market investigation into the supply of airport services by BAA. BAA owns seven airports that account for 62% of all UK air passengers. The CC has been investigating BAA’s activities for over a year following a reference by the OFT. The CC’s provisional conclusions are that BAA’s common ownership impedes competition in the London area (between Heathrow, Gatwick and Stanstead) and in Scotland (between Edinburgh and Glasgow). The CC is consulting on proposals to require BAA to divest two of its London airports and one of its airports in Scotland. The CC is also critical of the current regulation of airports. BAA announced that it would sell Gatwick but would resist any other divestitures.
