Queensland Airports: Economy of scale means otherwise non-profitable airports still can operate

9-Aug-2013 4:51 PM

Australia's Queensland Airports MD Dennis Chant, speaking at the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit, stated (09-Aug-2013) having a group structure of airports like Queensland Airports does means that some regional airports are able to maintain operations which would otherwise not be sustainable. He said the company benefits from economy of scale, and that the larger and more profitable airports within a portfolio can subsidise smaller and less-viable airports. Queensland Airports, a regional airport specialist, owns and operates Gold Coast, Townsville, Mount Isa and Longreach airports.
