Reader feedback: Private airport won't fly

Re: Airport sale, distant deal, By Lukáš Fila, September 29 - October 5,2003, Volume 9, Number 37

Australia privatised its airports a few years ago. Fees for everything went up through the roof and are still going up. Parking is expensive, taxis are charged fees to line up at the airport, landing fees went up etc., etc. Guess who pays for the company to make massive profits. Only need one guess? Slovak passengers will pay, and they'll be sorry.
