About Sydney Airport

Sydney Airport (ASX:SYD) is Australia's primary international airport, with more than 40 million people arriving or departing from the airport each year.

Sydney Airport stock profile

Sydney Airport is a public company that has been listed on the ASX since 2002. The stock is not only part of the benchmark ASX200 index, but is among the top 50 stocks listed on the ASX (by market cap). Due to extreme travel restrictions put in place to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, Sydney Airport has seen its share price fall.


  • Buying opportunity. Sydney Airport's share price has pulled back significantly from its recent highs due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions, which some analysts say is presenting a good buying opportunity for patient investors.
  • Monopoly. At the moment Sydney Airport almost operates as a monopoly, being the primary airport for international arrivals and departures in Australia. Auckland International Airport is the only other international airport listed on the ASX, and you could make the argument for holding both in your portfolio.
  • Blue chip income stock. Sydney Airport is a popular blue chip stock for Australian investors with a long history of paying dividends.


  • Share price fall. Because of strict travel restrictions and major airlines grounding the majority of their planes, Sydney Airport has seen its share price fall to its lowest point in about four years.
  • Travel restrictions. We don't know how long the travel restrictions around the coronavirus pandemic will remain in place.
  • Second airport coming. A second international airport is being built in Western Sydney and set to be finished by 2026, which could provide more competition for Sydney Airport.
