LONDON HEATHROW FEE CHANGE ANGERS BMI

BAA has changed its fee structure to charge international and domestic airlines. British Midland, which operates a large domestic network, says the new fees unfairly penalise domestic carriers who do not incur the same customs and security costs.

Chief executive, Wolfgang Prockschauer said that BAA’s decision would ‘damage the economic links between Heathrow and key regions across the UK’. He also said that the new fees could force it to cut domestic routes.

BMI is planning to complain to the UK Civil Aviation Authority, which has the power to force the airport operator, owned by Spanish firm Ferrovial, to abandon the new fee structure if it finds that the charges unfairly hurt one airline.
