Melbourne Centre is one of our two major centres – the other being in Brisbane.
The Melbourne flight information region (FIR) includes the southern half of Australia and the Southern and Indian oceans. Representing around six per cent of the world’s surface, our service delivery extends from Indonesia to the South Pole and from halfway to New Zealand to halfway to Africa. The centre is directly responsible for en route services throughout the FIR.
The first air traffic control operations commenced in Melbourne Centre in November 1998. By 31 January 2000, the transition to full operations was complete.
Airservices work closely with our FIR neighbours including South Africa, Mauritius, Male (The Maldives), Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Auckland (New Zealand).
