The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has decided to not object to a proposal by Airservices Australia to increase prices for some of its monopoly services, from 1 July 2015. Airservices Australia provides air traffic control and aviation fire-fighting and rescue services to airports and airlines.
The ACCC assesses notifications of proposed price increases by Airservices Australia. The proposal will put into effect pricing for the final year of Airservices Australia’s long-term pricing plan, which was approved by the ACCC in 2011.
The ACCC released its decision to not object to Airservices' price notification on 22 June 2015.
On 4 June 2015, 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 2015. The notification is consistent with the draft price notification submitted to the ACCC on 1 May 2015.
The proposed prices are consistent with the price path outlined in Airservices’ long-term pricing agreement, which was assessed and accepted by the ACCC in 2011.
Prior to lodgment of the formal price notification, Airservices submitted a draft of its proposal as part of the ACCC’s informal pre-lodgment process for assessing price notifications. This was provided to the ACCC on 1 May 2015.
