BAA Limited has announced that it is to apply to the Competition Appeal Tribunal to review the Competition Commission’s final report on the investigation into the airports market. The report ordered BAA to sell a number of UK airports, namely Gatwick, Stansted and one of Glasgow or Edinburgh, to remedy adverse effects on competition. BAA’s first ground for review is that the report was affected by apparent bias due to the links between a member of the review panel and one of the bidders for Gatwick airport. The company is also arguing that the Commission failed to take into account the adverse financial impact of introducing competition, including by requiring the company to sell three airports in the space of two years in the current economic climate.
