Economic regulation of Gatwick Airport Limited: consultation on new commitments

Closed 30 Nov 2020

Opened 22 Oct 2020


This consultation seeks stakeholders’ views on our proposed approach to updating the economic regulation of Gatwick Airport Ltd (GAL).

Why your views matter

The current regulation of GAL is based on a set of commitments that expire on 31 March 2021. Following discussions with airlines and other stakeholders, GAL finalised a set of new proposed commitments earlier this year. Our initial assessment, for consultation, is that these commitments are consistent with protecting the interests of consumers and this document consults on accepting GAL’s commitments for the four year period from 2021/22 to 2024/25.
