Tigerair launches bid for greater SYD terminal access

Tigerair Australia has launched an action to force Sydney Airport to allow it greater terminal access, saying capacity constraints placed on the airline are adversely affecting its ability to compete, and are limiting future expansion plans.

The airline has lodged an application with the National Competition Council (NCC) requesting that the service provided by Sydney Airport Corporation at Terminal 2 be “declared” under the Competition and Consumer Act.

Tigerair opened its Sydney base in 2012, and it claims that it faces issues at the airport such as limited access to gates with an aerobridge during peak periods, which require it to transport passengers to remote aircraft stands by bus.

Tigerair Australia CEO Rob Sharp stated that the airline was operating in an environment where infrastructure was increasingly constrained.

Sharp said: “This has a major impact on the experience of our customers, increases operating costs and limits future expansion opportunities. We simply can’t wait for the medium or long term for solutions to appear – it’s a highly competitive environment and we can’t compete in this market with one hand tied behind our back.”
