The Liberal and Nationals Government has today announced a Productivity Commission (PC) inquiry into the economic regulation of airport services.

The inquiry will review the efficiency and effectiveness of the economic regulation of airport services where scheduled airline services are provided.

The PC inquiry will also review the provision of passenger and freight transport services at the main passenger airports in major cities.

In addition, the PC is to examine any unintended consequences of the regulatory price cap and price notification regime for regional air services into and out of Sydney Airport.

The Commission is due to report to Government within 12 months.

The Commission will undertake public consultation as part of the inquiry and the Government encourages all interested parties to participate.

Further information and the terms of reference are available on the Commission's website.
