Australian Airports, Airlines at Loggerheads

Australian Airports, Airlines at Loggerheads
Ryan Boyd

Airports in Australia have been accused by Airlines for Australia and New Zealand (A4ANZ), which represents Qantas, Virgin Australia and Air New Zealand, as exercising undue influence as a result of their monopoly status at the expense of carriers.

According to A4ANZ, Australian airports are “exercising market power; to the detriment of airlines, the broader aviation sector, consumers, and the economy.”

In response, the Australian Airports Association (AAA) has decried “the falsehood peddled by A4ANZ that airports are abusing their market power to the detriment of consumers,” claiming that Australian airports have encouraged industry growth and increased passenger volume.

    seriously the airports don’t have a leg to stand on. Their car parking fees are a total ripoff. Luckily Uber offers a cheap way for many to get to the airport.
