Australian Airports Association (AAA) stated Sydney does not require a second major airport with executive director Caroline Wilkie stating Bankstown, Camden, Canberra and Newcastle airports are all able to meet the aviation activity demand that is forecast in Sydney Airport's master plans (SMH, 17-Nov-2010).
AAA: "Sydney Airport has the capacity to meet forecast aviation demand in the Sydney region to at least 2029. This is clearly shown in its master plan, which was approved by the Australian Government in 2009. The money needed to provide such infrastructure would be far better spent on improving existing ground transport infrastructure that would better link the Sydney CBD and current airport assets in NSW and the ACT," Caroline Wilkie, ececutive director.
