MP slams airport parking charges


A Glasgow MP said parking charges at Scottish airports are as expensive as flights, the Evening Times reports. John Robertson, MP for Glasgow North West, wants airport operator BAA to reduce its charges. He tabled a question in the Commons this week criticising the car park charges he says can cost more than flights.

Mr Robertson said: ‘This is a blatant example of airport operators ripping-off the travelling public and should not be allowed to continue. Instead of having to save to buy flights to go on holiday your going to have to save up to buy airport parking!’

He blames the charges on a lack of competition between airport operators. He might be interested to know that BAA do not allow other airport parking operators to sell spaces at their car parks for less than the rate they set, so there can be no competition at its airports. Other UK airports impose similar restrictions, so the only competition is between on and off airport parking. It is interesting to note that were this is significant, parking charges are lower.
