Aussie, NZ car­ri­ers to com­bat high fees

New Straits Times - - Business -

The big­gest air­lines in Aus­tralia and New Zealand said yes­ter­day they had formed a new in­dus­try ad­vo­cacy group to com­bat ris­ing air­port fees charged by re­gional mo­nop­o­lies. Ma­jor air­ports in the two coun­tries are owned by com­mer­cial en­ti­ties, such as Syd­ney Air­port Hold­ings Ltd and Auck­land In­ter­na­tional Air­port Ltd, rather than be­ing govern­ment-owned as in the United States and Europe. The Aus­tralia and New Zealand gov­ern­ments do not have the abil­ity to reg­u­late fees.
