Region. Freight to smaller airports

Bankstown Airport and RAAF Richmond could be used for freight services to create additional capacity at Sydney Airport. “Passengers like to fly into Sydney, but it doesn’t matter for freight. Surely the immediate starting point is to free up landing slots that can go somewhere else. Promoting the use of these smaller airports as freight and regional flight hubs is an initial positive step,” said Peter Collins, MD, of Barton Deakin Government Relations and a former Liberal NSW treasurer.
