In response to the Civil Aviation Authoritys (CAA) initial price proposals for London airports, Willie Walsh, chief executive of IAG, British Airways parent company, said, Heathrow airport is over-priced, over-rewarded and inefficient and these proposals, which will result in an increase in prices, fail to address this situation.

In the past the CAA has rewarded Heathrow for inefficiency and it is now the most expensive hub airport in the world. Its charges have tripled in the last 11 years with inflation busting increases year-on-year.

The Gatwick proposals, which will result in a significant increase in charges, are completely unjustifiable, totally unacceptable and directly contravene the CAAs new remit to represent customers interests.

The CAA must not be allowed to fail again. In line with its new remit, Dame Deirdre Hutton and the CAA board should protect customers and ensure that they get a better deal.

We will make strong representations to Dame Deirdre and the board to reconsider this proposal.
