Airservices presents at RAAA

Avalon Tower

Airservices Australia Chief Executive Officer Jason Harfield addressed delegates at the Regional Aviation Association of Australia’s National Convention this afternoon.

The two day convention is being held on the Gold Coast and brings together industry leaders, regional operators, technical experts, manufacturers, suppliers, government and other regulatory bodies.

During his address, Mr Harfield discussed the promises Airservices is now delivering through the Accelerate program, moving from an out-dated operating model to become a profitable, sustainable, more customer-focused organisation.

He also acknowledged the essential role regional aviation plays in nurturing health, connectivity, and opportunities for regional and remote Australians. As well as how Airservices will continue to protect and promote general aviation by continuing to waive charges for low volume general aviation operators.
