The Age, 29 August 2011
There are only two countries on earth that decided to fully privatise their airport systems, driven by the idea that governments have no place running commercial businesses. Both countries, Australia and Britain, have created disasters of high costs and poor service for consumers. The British airports monopoly is being dismantled to separate the previous common ownership of London’s Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports.
