Our purpose


Our purpose is to provide safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible air navigation and aviation rescue fire fighting services that are valued by the aviation industry and community on behalf of our owner, the Australian Government.

We operate in accordance with the requirements of the Air Services Act 1995 (the Act) and the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 and in response to the Government’s Statement of Expectations (Appendix A) issued as a notice of strategic direction to the Board of Airservices Australia under Section 17 of the Act.

A key legislative obligation under the Air Services Act 1995 is to foster and promote civil aviation. In fulfilling this obligation in an ever changing operating environment, our service delivery must not become an operational or economic impediment to the growth of the aviation industry.
