Airlines monitoring

The ACCC monitors prices, costs and profits of domestic air passenger transport services in accordance with the direction issued by the Treasurer under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (the Act) in June 2020.

Our responsibilities

The direction requires the ACCC to provide a public report to the Treasurer at least once every quarter. The direction requires the ACCC to monitor the industry for a period of three years.

The ACCC will be looking out for any early signs of damage to competition in the domestic airline industry which could harm the long-term interests of consumers. This information can then be acted on by the ACCC and/or provided to the Government.
