BAA to sell Stansted

BAA has announced it will sell Stansted Airport, following pressures from the Competition Commission.

The airport operator has fought a long-running legal battle after the Commission ruled in 2009 that it must sell the Stansted operations due to ownership of the UK’s largest airport, Heathrow.

A statement from the company said: “We still believe that the Competition Commission ruling fails to recognise that Stansted and Heathrow serve different markets.”

16 airlines serving over 150 destinations operate from Stansted, which is the UK’s fourth busiest airport.
