BAA boss forgoes bonus over travel chaos

| December 22, 2010

Heathrow airport’s boss, Colin Matthews, has announced he will forgo his 2010 bonus after saying he was a�?responsiblea�? for the recent crisis at the snow-hit airport.

Mr Matthews said: “We’ve had a crisis here. I am responsible and I have decided not to take my bonus.”

However, BAA would not disclose what Mr Matthewsa�� six-figure bonus would have been but last year, he received A?994,000 in pay and bonuses, excluding shares.

Many passengers have had their Christmas travel plans delayed or ruined after heavy snow hit London on Saturday.

The snow and ice over the weekend and earlier this week meant thousands of flights were grounded after the airport, which is Europea��s busiest, was forced to close during one of its busiest periods of the year.

The airport, which was criticised for its response to the severe weather, is now clearing its passenger backlog.
