About Airservices Australia

Airservices is a government owned organisation providing safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible services to the aviation industry.

Australia’s airspace is complex and unique. Airservices as Australia’s air navigation service provider, is responsible for 11 per cent of the world’s airspace, safely managing over four million air traffic movements and carrying more than 156 million passengers each year.

The economic numbers are well understood – aviation contributes around $7 billion annually to the Australian economy and employs nearly 60,000 people.

Every day of each year, we keep flying around Australia safe. It’s a huge responsibility and one we take very seriously.

Right now, the aviation industry is evolving quickly, and it’s vital that we evolve with it. We must move to take advantage of new technologies to make our services faster, more efficient and more valuable for our customers—airlines and other airspace users.


What are we responsible for?

Airservices provides air traffic control and aviation rescue firefighting services to the aviation industry.
We provide the aviation industry with telecommunications, aeronautical data, navigation services and aviation rescue firefighting services.

We maintain the technology used for navigation and surveillance to support safe and efficient air traffic operations, including airspace design and provide advice on airport-related developments and their potential impact on safe air navigation.

Our performance relies on the performance of all participants in the global aviation ecosystem – airline manufacturers, airlines, airports and the myriad government and regulatory authorities.

Airservices works closely with the independent office of the Aircraft Noise Ombudsman to improve the way in which we respond to community queries or concerns about the effect of air traffic.
