Air Navigation (Exemption for commercial non-scheduled flights) Determination 2019
Remaking sunsetting instrument without significant amendments – Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities
On 22 March 2019, the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities (DIRDC) remade the Determination under subsection 15A(3) of the Air Navigation Act 1920, without significant amendment, for a period of 10 years until 1 April 2029.
Air Navigation (Exemption for Commercial Non-Scheduled Flights) Determination 2019 exempts aircraft operators from the requirement to obtain permission from the Secretary of the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities for certain categories of commercial international non-scheduled flights. These flights include programs by aircraft with less than 80 seats (with frequency limits), various cargo services and one-off flights. The exemptions provided in the Determination enable operators of such services to respond quickly to industry demand.
Consistent with Government’s best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, DIRDC has assessed the Instrument as operating effectively and efficiently. Therefore, a Regulation Impact Statement is not required for remaking this instrument without significant amendments.
