OFT, Britain”s Office of Fair Trading, is to study the UK airports market with a view to establishing whether the current structure works well for consumers. It says that the decision to proceed with the study reflects the importance of airports to consumers and businesses within the UK. In a statement it pointed out that nearly two-thirds of UK air passengers begin or end their journey at BAA Plc airports. Within the London area this rises to nine out of ten passengers, and in Scotland over eight out of ten air passengers flying from the privatized former national airport organization. At this stage the OFT has not reached a decision on whether a reference for a more in-depth investigation by the Competition Commission is warranted but it hopes to publish the results of the study by the end of 2006.
