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 in June 2020.
The direction requires the ACCC to monitor the industry for a period of three years. It is required to provide a public report to the Treasurer at least once every quarter.
Through this monitoring role, the ACCC will seek to facilitate and protect competition in the domestic air passenger services industry. The ACCC will be ready to act, including by engaging with government about a potential policy response, should there be any signs of behaviour that damages competition or that competition is not effective.
