Court of Appeal agrees to hear another BAA appeal

The long running saga over the future ownership of Stansted Airport is set to continue for several more months, at least, following an announcement by the Court of Appeal today that it is prepared to hear another appeal from BAA. This is despite the fact that BAA’s last appeal was dismissed on all five grounds.

Stop Stansted Expansion’s Economics Adviser Brian Ross commented: “Like King Canute, BAA is fighting a battle which it must know it cannot win.”
