On 10 June 2014 Airservices submitted a formal price notification to the ACCC proposing new charges for en route, terminal navigation and aviation rescue and fire-fighting services, effective from 1 July 2014.
The proposed prices are consistent with those that were outlined in Airservices’ long-term pricing agreement, which was assessed by the ACCC in 2011, and the draft price notification submitted to the ACCC on 9 May 2014.
The ACCC released its decision to not object to Airservices' price notification on 26 June 2014.
Regulatory approach to assessing price notifications
On 22 September 2011, the ACCC decided to not object to Airservices’ price notification of 9 September 2011. The price notification proposed a five year price path from 2011 to 2016 for increases in charges for TN and ARFF services. Lodgment of the formal price notification followed an extended period of industry consultation and assessment by the ACCC.
