The Aviation Services Accreditation Support Program provides financial assistance to Australia’s aviation industry to assist with the impact of COVID-19. A significant portion of aviation ground handling staff have not worked since March 2020 and due to this long period of negligible flying activity, the ground handling workforce are likely to require retraining and reaccreditation to ensure safety standards are maintained for all flights. Noting that ground handling organisations service all aspects of aviation, the Program will provide capped grants to eligible businesses to contribute to mandatory training, certification, and accreditation of ground handling workers essential for the operation of aircraft. Training support would be available for both new and existing employees, as required to support aviation recovery.
