Airport regulation is a contested policy area, with airlines calling for changes to increase their bargaining power in negotiations with airports. The Productivity Commission’s draft report on the economic regulation of airports found that Australian airports are investing and operating efficiently by world standards, and existing airport regulation benefits the community. However, reforms are needed to enable greater scrutiny of airport performance in specific areas of concern. This talk will explain the Commission’s draft findings and recommendations, including why it thinks you’re not paying too much to park at the airport!
