The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will outline its initial proposals for how much airlines will be charged for using London's three main airports between 2014 and 2019.

The plans will have an impact on fares at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports - the only three airports that are regulated by the CAA.

A final decision is due in January next year.
