Baku. Nijat Mustafayev – APA-Economics. London's Heathrow Airport intends to increase charges for landing and takeoff by 40% in the coming 6 years. Whereas, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic airlines called Heathrow leadership to reduce these expenses. The airlines will probably make the passengers to pay these costs, APA-Economics reports.

Passengers must be ready for price rise in flights via London Heathrow airport. The charges are expected to increase by 40% in the coming six years - at the expense of this increase, management of the largest British airlines intends to compensate £ 3 billion investment in the facilities, including the completion of the construction of “Terminal 2” and taxi lanes for the giant Airbus A380.

The final decision will be announced in January 2014.

According to representatives of British Airways, the mentioned tariffs are too high. Thus, these tariffs have tripled in the last ten years: ‘If in 2009-2014, investments in Heathrow reached 4 billion pounds, in 2014-2019 they are estimated at £ 3 billion’.

Other large airlines - Virgin Atlantic thinks that the amount of charges at Heathrow airport will rise from £ 19.33 to 27.30 pounds in real terms in 2019.

So, if we take it into consideration, tickets for Baku-London flight might go up in future. But it is possible that after the expected increase, the airlines will fly to another airport in London, for example to Gatwick Airport.
