Heathrow Forced To Slash Airline Fees - Unknown Yet If Savings Will Be Passed To Travellers

Heathrow Forced To Slash Airline Fees - Unknown Yet If Savings Will Be Passed To Travellers


This Is Money is reporting that Heathrow will have to cut the fees it charges airlines over the 2024-2026 period after the aviation regulator responded to pressure from airlines over the cost of flying from Britain’s biggest airport. However, I wouldn't get too excited as these lower airline costs may not be passed onto travellers in any meaningful way. Supply and demand will always determine pricing overall.

The quote from Richard Moriarty, chief executive at the UK Civil Aviation Authority:
Our priority in making this decision today is to ensure the travelling public can expect great value for money from using Heathrow in terms of having a consistently good quality of service, whilst paying no more than is needed for it.

We have carefully considered the sharply differing views from Heathrow Airport Limited and the airlines about the future level of charges. Understandably, their respective shareholder interests lead the airport to argue for higher charges and the airlines to argue for lower charges.

Our job is to reach an independent decision from these conflicting commercial interests and focus on what is in the best interests for the travelling public that will use Heathrow in the years to come. In doing so we have taken all the points made by Heathrow Airport Limited and airlines into account, along with extensive consultation and our own detailed analysis.

We are confident our final decision represents a good deal for consumers using Heathrow, while having regard for the airport's need to efficiently finance its operations and be able to invest in improving services for the future.
