The article is a smidge misleading. PER now owns the terminal building that QF resides in despite a dispute over the price. What PER should do is get on with building the terminal, not expand or invest into T4 and force QF to move across to Airport central at the end of their lease term. Yes it will be a nuisance and yes QF will complain but just get on and do it. Once it's done QF won't have a choice but to move and PER can bulldoze that part of the airport.
Unfortunately airport pricing doesn’t work that way - airlines pay for the capex…. So QF will need to start paying for a terminal under construction…. I suspect they are using PER to flag the challenges of a lack of airport regulation in Australia.
Yeah I know. I suspect you are right in relation to QF and the situation will remain in stalemate with WA the only loser until someone gets off their fence. It is a tad ridiculous that a user needs to pay for someone else's capex to provide a service to them AND that someone else then charges extortionate rent on top of that once the facility is built. A truly stupid state of affairs.
