R (on the application of Monarch Airlines Ltd (in administration)) v Airport Co-ordination Ltd (Manchester Airports Group plc intervening)

Air traffic – Airport. The defendant was not under a duty to allocate summer 2018 permissions to use airport infrastructure necessary for the operation of air services at specified times for the purpose of the taking off and landing of aircraft to the claimant airline (Monarch), which was in administration. The Divisional Court, in dismissing Monarch's application for judicial review, held that such a duty would not accord with the purpose underlying the relevant regulations and Monarch was not an air carrier.
