Airservices Australia’s Chief Executive Officer Jason Harfield today welcomed the publication of the organisation’s 2018-19 Corporate Plan, which demonstrates Airservices ongoing commitment to delivering value to Australia’s aviation industry.

“Airservices 2018-19 Corporate Plan highlights how our substantial investment in new technology and equipment will support not only our customers, but all airspace users in a rapidly changing aviation environment,” said Mr Harfield.

The plan presents a comprehensive picture of the full range of activity and investments Airservices will undertake in the coming years, with a focus on service excellence and innovation.

The OneSKY program to harmonise civil and military air traffic management remains a priority to manage industry growth safely and efficiently, while delivering over $1 billion in industry benefits.

Airservices customers will also benefit from investment in digital aerodrome technology, Airport Collaborative Decision Making and Long Range Air Traffic Flow Management; as well as the communications, navigation and surveillance facilities to support industry expansion and infrastructure investment at airports across Australia.

“At the same time, our prices will remain steady at 2015 levels through the life of the plan. This is a 17 per cent price decrease in real terms, while delivering an investment program to significantly improve value for all airspace users,” Mr Harfield said.

“I look forward to the years ahead, as Airservices continues its important journey to deliver safe and efficient services to the industry and nation we serve.”
