The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) notes that the Commission for
Aviation Regulation (CAR) has today confirmed its prior position not to
introduce differential pricing at Dublin Airport.
The DAA welcomes CAR's decision not to introduce a differential charge
for terminal facilities at Dublin Airport, as it complies with the
wishes of the majority of airlines that use the airport, as well as
representative bodies from the business and tourism sectors, all of whom
are totally opposed to differential pricing.
The fairest way for passengers to pay for standard airport services is
through a single charge whereby all passengers pay the same fee to use
the same core services. Optional services such as the use of air bridges
are charged separately and in this manner, airlines do pay different
prices depending on the services that they decide to use. This is the
charging system that applies at Dublin Airport and at the vast majority
of international airports.
The Commission indicated in its report that it "does not believe there
is anything to be gained by mandating the DAA to introduce differential
pricing given it already does price differentially on occasion".
