The company formerly known as BAA is to sell Stansted airport to the Manchester Airports group for £1.5 billion.
The deal, announced late this evening, will mean that BAA - now known as Heathrow Airport Holdings - will be responsible for just four UK airports compared with its original seven.
The remaining ones are Heathrow, Southampton, Aberdeen and Glasgow.
