Aviation Green Paper

The Aviation Green Paper, released on 7 September 2023, marks an important stage in developing the Aviation White Paper which will set the policy direction for the aviation sector out to 2050.

Through the Green Paper, the Government sought feedback on aviation matters, including:

  • airlines, airports and passengers – competition, consumer protections and disability access settings
  • regional and remote aviation services
  • maximising aviation's contribution to net zero
  • airport development planning process and consultation mechanisms
  • general aviation
  • fit-for-purpose agencies and regulations
  • emerging aviation technologies
  • future industry workforce
  • international aviation

The Green Paper was informed by the Scenario Analysis of the Future of Australian Aviation report undertaken for the Department by L.E.K. Consulting.

Consultation on the Aviation Green Paper was undertaken from 7 September 2023 to 30 November 2023 and has now closed.

Submissions on the Green Paper will help to inform the development of the Aviation White Paper, to be released in mid-2024.
