Regional Aviation Policy Statement—Deferral of Consultation Process

COVID-19 is having significant impacts on all aspects of the Australian economy, including the regional aviation industry.

The consultation on the Regional Aviation Policy Statement was deferred in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

On 1 October 2020, the Department released Flying to Recovery: The Future of the Australian Aviation Sector Issues Paper that discusses the challenges and opportunities for the sector beyond COVID-19. Those who intended to contribute views on the Regional Aviation Policy Statement are invited to participate in the consultation process for the Flying to Recovery Issues Paper consultation process. For information on the Issues Paper and its consultation process see the Future of Australia's Aviation Sector.
