Improving Air Access
Liberalising air services agreements
Aviation is a fast growing and dynamic industry and it takes continual effort to keep ahead in this rapidly evolving sector.
International air transport services to and from Australia are vital for the Australian economy, particularly for tourism, trade and merchandise exports. An unconstrained air services sector also promotes social connectedness and facilitates travel between Australia and the world for non-tourism related activities such as education, medical and business purposes. Consequently, the regulatory stance towards ASAs is of great economic and social importance for Australia.
The Australian Airports Association (AAA) engaged Deloitte Access Economics to examine the potential economic impacts of liberalised Air Services Agreements (ASAs).
