Economic Regulation of Airports

Public hearings

The Productivity Commission held focused public hearings on competition in the market for jet fuel in late November 2018.

Public hearings regarding the broader inquiry will be held in March–April 2019 following the release of the Commission’s draft report in February.

Public hearings provide participants with the opportunity to elaborate on their submissions, respond to submissions of others, and to discuss issues with Commissioners. The transcripts of the hearings will be made available publicly on the Commission's website.
