Summary and analysis of information disclosure

Under Section 53B(2)(b) of the Commerce Act, the Commerce Commission is required to publish summary and analysis of information that is publicly disclosed by regulated airports.

The Commission's summary and analysis of disclosures is intended to promote greater understanding of the performance of individual regulated airports, their relative performance, and the changes in performance over time.

The Commission is currently undertaking summary and analysis of information disclosed by Auckland International Airport Limited (Auckland Airport) and Christchurch International Airport Limited (Christchurch Airport).

Auckland and Christchurch Airports have set the prices that will apply during the period 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2022. The Commission received the price setting disclosure information from both airports in August 2017. This disclosure is the third of its kind for both Auckland and Christchurch Airports since information disclosure requirements were set under Part 4. This third price setting event is referred to as PSE3.

The Commission has previously published summary and analysis reports for Wellington International Airport Limited (Wellington Airport) and Christchurch Airport. The Commission’s report for Wellington Airport related to the airport’s third price setting event for the period 1 June 2014 to 31 March 2019. The prices set by Wellington Airport as part of PSE3 superseded prices set for the period 1 June 2014 to 31 March 2017.

The Commission’s report for Christchurch Airport related to revised information disclosed for its second price setting event (PSE2) which covered the period 1 December 2012 to 30 June 2017.

The Commission has not previously published a summary and analysis report for Auckland Airport because the airport had not revised its pricing since its PSE2. The Commission provided analysis of Auckland Airport’s PSE2 in our report to the Ministers, which was required under s 56G of the Act.
