Air passengers are being promised lower-than-planned price rises following aviation regulators’ decisions on just how much airlines are charged by London’s three main airports over the next five years.

At Heathrow, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has ruled that the charges, to take effect from April, will be lower than it first proposed and lower than Heathrow bosses wanted.

At Gatwick, the CAA has not fixed a price as such and will base its regulation of the West Sussex airport on the airport’s own commitments to its airline customers.
