The International Air Transport Association has warned the Airports Company of South Africa that proposed tariff hikes could harm the local economy.
Acsa have been cleared to implement a 161-percent increase in airport charges over the next five years.
The Transport Association’s Tony Tyler says the hikes are a clear indication that reform is desperately needed in the South African aviation industry.
The hikes could lead to the country having the most expensive airports in the world.
