Stansted Must Be Sold

30 March 2011, 09:32

The Competition Commission has told airport operator BAA that it must sell Stansted.

BAA has also been told it must also sell either Glasgow Airport or Edinburgh Airport.

The Commission ruled that BAA had to sell Stansted and one of the Scottish airports back in 2009, but the operator appealed.

Despite BAA's legal challenge, the original ruling has been upheld.

The Commission says that the decision is "the right one for passengers and airlines".
