AUSTRALIAN COMPETITION AND CONSUMER COMMISSION

 

COMPETITION AND CONSUMER ACT 2010

 

PART VIIA, DIVISION 4, SUBSECTION 95ZC(3)

 

SYDNEY AIRPORT CORPORATION LIMITED PRICE NOTIFICATION

 

 

  1. On 6 August 2013, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) received a price notification (a locality notice) from Sydney Airport Corporation Limited (SACL) under Part VIIA, subsection 95Z(5) of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (the Act).

 

  1. The price notification was occasioned by the planned move of Qantaslink’s operations from Sydney Airport’s common user domestic terminal (Terminal 2) to the Qantas leased and operated domestic terminal (Terminal 3).

 

  1. SACL’s price notification proposes to charge providers of regional air services substantially the same charges that were notified by SACL in 2002, to which the ACCC did not object. The charges are proposed to apply to the provision of regional air services from 15 August 2013.

 

  1. Under the Act, the ACCC has 21 days from receiving a locality notice to consider the locality notice.

 

  1. The ACCC decided to not object to the prices set out in that locality notice, and advised SACL of its decision by notice issued pursuant to Part VIIA, paragraph 95Z(6)(b) of the Act on 15 August 2013.

 

  1. The proposed prices and a summary of the reasons for the ACCC’s decision have been published on the ACCC’s website at www.accc.gov.au and are included in the public register kept under Part VIIA, section 95ZC of the Act.
