Today’s decision means the company can now appeal against the Competition Appeal Tribunal’s judgment on February 1 which had backed the Competition Commission’s decision that BAA must sell Stansted, Gatwick and one of its two Scottish airports, Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Gatwick was auctioned off in 2009, while the sale of Edinburgh was announced in April this year.

A BAA spokesman said: “We are pleased that permission to appeal has been granted and look forward to presenting our arguments before the Court of Appeal.”
