Sydney Airport to Rake in Parking Fees

With the National Rugby League and Australian Football League finals happening, the fees for parking at Sydney Airport and Melbourne Airport are being pulled back to the forefront of travelersí minds. Even still, there isnít a fee high enough in the world that will keep sports fans away from their beloved championship games.

THEY have long been the bane of many travellers: car parking fees at Sydney Airport.

But documents seen by Fairfax Media show Melbourne Airport expects car parking charges to be almost 20 per cent of its income this financial year, almost double that at Sydney Airport.

The fees will once again be front and centre this weekend as the NRL and AFL grand finals encourage more people to fly between the two cities. Airlines are putting on more flights this weekend to cater for the extra demand on one of the world's busiest air routes.
