Heathrow Airport Holdings has today completed the sale of Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports to a consortium formed by Macquarie and Ferrovial.
John Holland-Kaye, chief executive of Heathrow, said: “Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports and their people have been part of our company for a long time.
“They are great airports and we are proud of their achievements.
“We wish the new owners and our airport colleagues every success and are confident the airports will continue to flourish.”
The sale enables Heathrow to focus on improving its remaining airport for passengers and winning support for a third runway expansion.
“Heathrow is the UK’s only hub airport, connecting all of Britain to global growth and bringing economic benefits locally and nationally,” concluded Holland-Kaye.
