Airport rated equal best in nation
PERTH Airport has been rated equal best in the nation by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
The ACCC increased the overall quality service ranking at Perth Airport in its 2015 to 2016 Airport Monitoring Report, putting it alongside Brisbane Airport – and above both Melbourne and Sydney – as the best commercial airport service provider in Australia.
Despite the challenge of a decline in flights and passenger numbers, revenue per passenger grew by 13 per cent during the 2015-2016 reporting period, growth Perth Airport’s chief executive Kevin Brown put down to a $1 billion redevelopment program.
“The redevelopment program is providing benefits for both passengers and airlines, and it is particularly pleasing to see that this is the first time in the past decade that Perth Airport has achieved the highest rating of Australian major airports by airlines,” said Mr Brown.
The Perth Airport Authority spent $205.9 million in 2015 to 2016 completing the new T1 domestic terminal and upgrading T1 international arrivals and departures.
The airport had a 3.7 per cent decline in parking revenue over the reporting period, yet increased spaces by 550 to 22,763 bays.
