John Holland-Kaye, chief executive of the Heathrow airport denied it plans to double airport charges along with the expansion through a third runway.
He challenged the reports and claimed it as “categorically untrue” in a letter published in yesterday’s daily.
He further mentioned that Heathrow was working hard on reducing the airport charges.
In 2017 the domestic charges was cut by £10, the average per passenger charge going down by 2.3 % to £21.92 not from the suggested £40.
The Heathrow had been making constant progress and benefiting from the expansion. It is trying to create better airport for passengers in a market where airline competition is driving down fares.
Heathrow has a strong track record and has been the best airport in western Europe since the last three years.
Reducing a major project’s cost without sacrificing the benefits is rare. Terminal 2 and 5 were complex projects which was delivered on time and budget.
