A major new report, published today by AirportWatch (2), reveals the harsh reality behind the responsible and green image that BAA tries to cultivate.
The launch of the report coincides with an international aviation conference BAA is hosting in London and with the release of the annual results from Ferrovial, the Spanish company rumoured to be considering a takeover bid for BAA .
The report compares the image BAA tries to present at each of its seven UK airports with the actual effect its expansion plans will have on the residents and the local environment. The report also exposes the very close links which exist between BAA and the Government. And it is critical of BAA’s cavalier attitude towards climate change.
