CAA: Price cap is 'good deal' for Heathrow passengers

The aviation regulator has described its proposal to cap landing fees at Heathrow airport as a "good deal" for passengers.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) says the annual rise from 2014 to 2018 should be no greater than the retail price index (RPI) - Heathrow had wanted to to increase the tariff it charges airlines by 4.6% above RPI.

The CAA's Head of Economic Regulation Richard Moriarty told BBC World News, "we think we've got that balance right" between the conflicting demands of airlines, airports and passengers.
