Call for AU$1bn privatisation of Airservices

Airservices Australia should be privatised by the federal government in a move that could raise $1 billion, according to a business and general aviation industry group, reports The Age.

The Australian Aviation Associations’ Forum (TAAAF), chaired by former Airservices boss Greg Russell, said on Thursday privatisation similar to the not-for-profit model used in Canada would make the air traffic control group more efficient.

Russell said the current partially corporatised model wasn’t best suited to meet the needs of the expected doubling in traffic over the next 20 years.
