BAA has confirmed that its three main shareholders have approved a £200m cash injection for its London airports.

A further £40m will be provided by FGP Topco Limited and BAA Airports Ltd, which will be used for the group’s three London airports – Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted – in January 2010.

The London airports have already received £260m from FGP Topco and BAA Airports.
