Sussan Ley hits out at ‘wishy-washy’ Jim Chalmers for defending high airfare prices | Englishheadline


Deputy Opposition leader Sussan Ley has slammed Treasurer Jim Chalmers for thinking that rising international airfares at a “higher cost” for consumers is in the “national interest”.

“How can that be?” Ms Ley told Englishheadline Australia.

“International airfares are up by 50 per cent – that seat capacity is down by 25 per cent.

“We’re missing out on about $788 million a year from inbound tourism, spending money desperately needed by our businesses across this country.

“And the Treasurer just wishy-washy on your program, saying ‘oh well, it’s all about the national interest’.”
