The Commerce Minister is in talks with Air New Zealand and Auckland Airport about their latest stoush over redevelopment plans. 

The airline claims the plans will make airfares five times more expensive by 2032, but the airport says it hasn't made any pricing decisions beyond 2027. 

Commerce Minister Andrew Bayly says he's awaiting the outcome of a Commerce Commission review into airport pricing decisions. 

But, he told Mike Hosking, in the meantime he's met with Air New Zealand, and he'll be meeting with airport CEO Carrie Hurihanganui tomorrow to urge her to have constructive talks with the airlines. 

Both companies are due to release their latest financial results this morning.
