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