‘A rip-off’: Chris Smith slams Sydney airport over car parking price hike

Chris Smith

Chris Smith doesn’t hold back, slamming Sydney Airport for “ripping off” hire car operators.

Hire car drivers are fuming over a 110% increase in parking fees at the international terminal – to wait in the same place as before.

Craig Norton from Sydney Airport says they have given operators the option of a new, separate area which is cheaper.

But Chris thinks the airport makes enough money from parking as it is.

“In 2015/16, Sydney Airport made $97.8 million profit from car parking fees alone, according to the ACCC.

“You’re allowing limo drivers to stay right where they were before if they’re prepared to pay 100% more.

“It’s a little bit of a rip-off.”
