Purple Parking Limited and Meteor Parking Limited v Heathrow Airport Limited  Comp Law 288
The recent decision of the High Court in Purple Parking Limited and Meteor Parking Limited v Heathrow Airport Limited  EWHC 987 (Ch) provides a rare example of a successful private claim being brought under Part II of the Competition Act 1998. This article discusses the judge’s findings and in particular the judge’s rejection of the argument that the claim that Heathrow Airport Limited had discriminatorily denied the claimants access to the airport forecourts while permitting its own operations such access could not be brought under s 18(2)(c) of the 1998 Act but rather had to be brought under the rubric of the essential facilities doctrine.
