Sydney Airport Corporation Limited (SACL)[1] is the private operator of Sydney Airport in Sydney, Australia.

Southern Cross Airports Corporation Holdings Limited (SCACH) is the ultimate parent company of SACL, which is controlled by a number of entities including Sydney Airport Holdings.

In 2002, the Australian Federal (Commonwealth) Government entered into an arrangement for SACL to lease and operate the airport for a period of ninety-nine (99) years. Whilst the airport is privately controlled under this agreement, the Australian Government still retains responsibility for other airport-related services through agencies such as Airservices Australia (air traffic control, aviation communications/navigation-aids, airport fire-fighting and rescue), the Australian Customs Service, the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service, the Australian Federal Police and the Department of Infrastructure and Transport.

The Chief Executive Officer of SACL is Mr. Russell Balding, formerly the Managing Director of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
