The Budget had a minimal focus on aviation. We hope the government will do a better job with the National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP).

While the NCAP is a step in the right direction, there are areas of concern, especially where it adds costs to the industry or where it deviates from well-established global standards.

We hope the government will address three priority areas – retract the 2% Regional Connectivity Fund levy, abandon the plan to auction traffic rights, and allow AERA to perform its functions independently by not enshrining any ‘Till’ for airport charges in the policy document.
