CAA Publishes Next Phase Of Price Control Process

News Release

21 May 2012




The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has today published a Policy Update in the process to set the economic regulation of airports after March 2014. Economic regulation of airports is only required where competition is not sufficiently strong to further the interests of passengers.


Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports are currently subject to CAA economic regulation.  For each airport if economic regulation is still required, then the CAA will need to set out the form of regulation that will be in place after the current price controls expire from April 2014.


The Government's Civil Aviation Bill, currently going through the Parliamentary process, proposes a series of reforms to the CAA's economic regulation to make it more flexible and responsive to the needs of passengers. Part of this process is to introduce a licence-based regime similar to that of other economic regulators, which the CAA expects to commence at the end of the current price control period.
