During 2017-18 we were accountable to the Australian Parliament and to the Australian Government through your portfolio as the Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development.

The Board, as the accountable authority of Airservices Australia, is responsible for preparing and submitting this report to you. It was endorsed at our meeting on 27 September 2018.

The report has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Air Services Act 1995, the PGPA Act, the PGPA Rule 2014 (PGPA Rule), and other relevant legislation.

This report outlines the achievements and milestones met by Airservices, and includes a review of operations and financial statements for the year ending 30 June 2018.

The performance statement has been prepared to demonstrate our performance over the 2017-18 period against the Airservices 2017-18 Corporate Plan. It reports against our key performance measures and initiatives articulated within the Plan. The appropriateness of the performance statement was reviewed by Airservices Board Audit and Risk Committee at its meeting on 26 September 2018.

In the Board’s opinion, the annual performance statements are based on properly maintained records, accurately reflect the performance of the entity, and comply with subsection 39(2) of the PGPA Act and section 16F of the PGPA Rule.

Yours sincerely
