Study Recommends Increased Sydney Flights While Curfew Remains

In a study that is to be released today, the recommendation is made that the number of flights operating out of the Sydney Airport should be increased and at the same time the government should begin planning for a second airport, the preferred location to be at Badgerys Creek.  The study also recommends keeping the 11:00 pm to 6:00 am curfew on flights into and out of Mascot, while NWS regional flights can continue to use the main Sydney Airport.

Federal Transport Minister, Anthony Albanese, has said that he will not increase the cap currently in place, which is set at 80 flights per hour.  The report, commissioned by Albanese in 2009, states that the cap will need to be lifted within the next few years as it is constraining the growth of the airport.  Albanese has also ruled out Badgerys Creek as a site for a second airport, despite the fact that it has been the recommended site since 1979.  If the cap on flights is increased it will mean more flights over the inner west suburbs of Sydney.
