Reforming Airport Regulation

The current debate about the future of airport regulation in the UK has arisen for a variety of reasons, which have together built up a substantive case for reform. In addition to the customer and airline complaints on the quality of service, the takeover of BAA has changed the context of the periodic review, revealing new information, and raising substantial issues of ring-fencing and the protections in place in the event of failure by the new owners. The context is further altered by the inquiry of the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) and the issue of break-up of airport ownership in the UK.
