Border force resources must meet demand
The Australian Airports Association (AAA) has expressed concern about reports today of reduced Australian Border Force staff numbers at airports over the busy holiday season.
AAA Chief Executive Officer Caroline Wilkie said the industry would seek reassurances from Government that appropriate resources would be in place during the holiday period, which is one of the busiest times of the year for Australian airports.
The AAA raised its concerns in the wake of media reports of reduced casual staff allocations for airports during the Christmas period.
December and January are among the busiest times of the year for Australian airports, as more passengers travel to meet loved ones or enjoy their summer holidays.
