Sydney Airport in ACCCs bad books

first_img“Sydney Airport’s low quality of service ratings and relatively low investments in the face of on-going increases in demand, suggest that needed investments have not been forthcoming,” the report said. Source = ETB News: Tom Neale Sydney Airport has been rated Australia’s worst large airport in the most recent Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) annual report on aviation. Out of the big four airports, Brisbane was the only the one to improve its level of service with Tullamarine passengers saying they received “good” service at Tullamarine. ACCC chairman Rod Sims said that capacity pressures would affect airports considerably in future. The ACCC has been concerned that parking bays have been restricted at Melbourne Airport with numbers lessening recently.  Sydney Airport has again received the worst rating of Australia’s four biggest airports, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. Despite the negative feedback, all four airports recorded car parking revenue growth. Airport users are charged $56 at Sydney Airport for eight hours parking. Sydney had both the highest car parking revenue per space as well as the highest parking margin per space. The report stresses that Sydney Airport will need to work on its congestion, improve capacity for passenger transit and enhance service levels in order to meet future demands. Airlines ratings fell across the board, with service levels going from “satisfactory” to “poor”. “It is likely that the current infrastructure at monitored airports will be under increasing pressure in future years given evidence of aeronautical and land-side congestion at some airports,” Mr Sims said.last_img
