has received notice from Air New Zealand of a claim regarding judicial review
charge with a passenger service charge payable by the airlines.
AIAL's CEO, Don Huse, said: "Three years of consultation regarding the setting of new charges was conducted by AIAL in strict accordance with the law and best practice.
"AIAL is entering the final year of a four-year, NZD500 million (USD385.9 million) capital expenditure programme. A fair and reasonable pricing framework that incentives airport investment is crucial. The action brought by Air New Zealand is most unfortunate. It will be strongly defended by AIAL."
