Airports: VIP Suites

Volume 712: debated on Tuesday 14 July 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what charges BAA levies on users of VIP suites at airports under its control; how many persons were on the list of those entitled to use the suites when the Government transferred responsibility for managing them, including selecting those entitled to use them, to BAA; what progress is being made in considering how to open up those facilities to a wider market, including domestic and foreign customers; and whether ability to pay will be the criterion for access to the suites. [HL4779]

Since the privatisation of the British Airports Authority in 1986, operational issues such as this have been a matter for the airport operator.
