Prices at Heathrow are triple the level they were 10 years ago. Clearly this is a concern for all passengers travelling through Heathrow, and all airlines operating there.
In the current economic climate other businesses, in private and public sectors and especially airlines, are making savings and delivering on less money.
Airports should not be exempt from that and we call upon the CAA to use its regulatory powers to ensure there is a real-terms reduction in charges applied to each passenger.
Passengers using Heathrow face a rise in ticket prices under £3 billion investment plans proposed by bosses of the west London airport.
