Australian Government imposes limits to Sydney Airport charges for regional airlines

Australian Government announced (02-Jun-2010) a new Declaration and Direction to make sure that regional airlines continue to have reasonable access to Sydney Airport. This will mean that Sydney Airport cannot increase its charges for regional airlines above the Consumer Price Index. Further, Sydney Airport will be required to notify the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) of all proposed increases for regional airlines. The Declaration and Direction extends the regime that commenced in 2002 and will operate from 01-Jul-2010 until 30-Jun-2013. [more]
