Oh dear. The Australian public have not been told of this in any direct way nor has Sydney Airports Ltd: released any such details. However, there is a lot of traffic into and out of SY. There used to be a $250 landing fee during peak timed, this no doubt, would be higher now and is for all operations. It's common to read is a NOTAM add 30 - 60 minutes holding fuel for IFR operations., something that's been in effect for several years. As for the seconds airport. That will never happen. Do your research of the areas and who used that part of Sydney during the last war.
