Airport insurance reviews

Through the airport lease and sale agreements, airport lessee companies have obligations to the Australian Government in relation to maintaining a range of insurances. With a view to establishing more effective and appropriate insurance arrangements, the Department has appointed an insurance consultant to advise it on matters relating to the insurance requirements of the airport leases and the levels of cover held by airport lessee companies.

Environmental authorisations

The Department may authorise an airport to undertake an action that may result in environmental emissions limits being exceeded where the emissions will be no more damaging to the environment than if the limits were met.
