ACCC: Access to slots at Sydney Airport can be ‘significant barrier’ for market entry

    Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) chair Rod Sims stated (29-Sep-2021) the ACCC supports recommendations that limit incumbent airlines’ ability to keep more take off and landing slots than they need. Mr Sims stated: “Access to take-off and landing slots at [Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport] can be a significant barrier for airlines to enter the market or expand their services”. He added: “The recommendations proposed by Peter Harris, such as greater transparency and a stronger system for monitoring compliance with airport slot rules, should make more slots available for new and expanding airlines”.
