Airport security changes

The Australian Airports Association has provided feedback to the Department of Home Affairs on its Aviation Security Roadmap for 2019, which outlines the proposed consultation and implementation time frames for a significant number of changes to airport security requirements.

Feedback focused on ensuring the transition process minimises the burden on industry and is progressed in a practical and efficient manner.

The Department is hosting teleconferences with airports and airlines over the next two days to provide an update on its progress with various regulatory changes, advise of upcoming consultation and answer any queries from industry.

The AAA also met with the Office of the Minister for Home Affairs earlier this week to discuss latest developments and provide an updated briefing on industry concerns.

If you have any questions regarding airport security matters, please contact AAA Policy Director Simon Bourke at
