    Airports are blaming the Government for rising costs that could push airlines out of the New Zealand market

    Airports are blaming the Government for rising costs that could push airlines out of the New Zealand market


    The Board of Airline Representatives says some airlines may drop New Zealand routes for more profitable ones, as the coronavirus outbreak disrupts world travel.

    It says rising landing costs are making New Zealand a less competitive landing destination.

    The Airports Association says New Zealand's major international airports haven't increased their real price per passenger for several years.

    It says Government agencies are responsible for escalating charges and levies at the border.
