Airlines slam high landing charges

Paris: High airport charges are threatening the recovery of the aviation industry, airlines claimed yesterday.
Giovanni Bisignani, secretary general of the International Air Transport Association, accused airports across the world of abusing their monopoly position.
Mr Bisignani, the outspoken former head of Alitalia, reserved his greatest criticism for AĆ©roports de Paris, where charges have increased 26.5pc since 2001.
Mr Bisignani's attack was echoed by other senior executives with mainstream scheduled carriers in Paris yesterday. Vasydevan Thulasidas, chairman of Air India, said: "Airlines are paying through the nose."
