The FINANCIAL — Sydney Airport has been named Oceania’s most efficient airport by the Air Transport Research Society (ATRS) for the fifth year in a row.
The Efficiency Excellence Award was presented to a Sydney Airport representative at the ATRS conference in Singapore on Friday, 3 July, according to Sydney Airport.
“We’re thrilled that ATRS has again recognised Sydney Airport as a leading airport in productivity, management and operational efficiency,” Sydney Airport managing director and chief executive officer Kerrie Mather said.
“We’re committed to continuous improvement for the benefit of our airline partners and passengers, investing in airfield, terminal and road infrastructure to further improve efficiency and capacity.
“Sydney Airport has invested close to $2.7 billion in airport improvements since 2002 and plans to invest a further $1.2 billion over the next five years.”
ATRS is the world’s leading academic society in the air transportation field. The ATRS Global Airports Performance Benchmarking Task Force – comprising 15 professors from around the world – has published its annual report covering commercial airports in Asia Pacific, Europe and North America every year since 2002.
The Efficiency Excellence Award was based on 2013 fiscal year data, including operational and managerial efficiency, competitiveness, financial performance, and cost and revenue data.
