CAA Announces Heathrow Charges Complaint Decision

RNS Number : 1033Z
Civil Aviation Authority
12 March 2012

News Release


12 March 2012





The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has today published its decision on a complaint by bmi about the structure of airport charges at Heathrow. bmi complained that Heathrow had unreasonably discriminated against it, other short haul airlines and passengers on domestic services following changes to the structure of charges introduced in April 2011. 


Following an investigation launched in July 2011 and a public hearing, the CAA has not found evidence that Heathrow's charges were unreasonably discriminatory. The decision adds though that Heathrow should be alert to harm arising in the future and ensure that, in reviewing its structure of charges, it ensures it continues to avoid abusing its position of significant market power.


The full decision document is available on the CAA website at
