|Quoting damian (Reply 10):|
Maybe, but a sale of EDI would in all likelihood generate more money for BAA, and EDI would be a more attractive buy for the reason you have mentioned. At the end of the day, selling EDI would put more money into the BAA coffers to spend at LHR, the only airport BAA really cares about.
And a new owner of EDI
might actually compete even harder with a BAA-owned GLA
, further weakening that airport and reducing value.
have been disposed of, would there be any reason BAA couldn't look at adding another regional airport elsewhere in the UK? For example, if BAA were reduced to LHR
, and say NCL
came up for sale, would the authorities be unhappy if BAA made a move for that airport?
