For the purposes of paragraph 9 (2) (c) of the Act, the circumstances prescribed are that the operational decision affects an existing operational decision by changing temporarily, or in a minor respect, the capacity to which the existing operational decision relates.

(2)
An operational decision described in subregulation (1) is a decision that allows:

(a)
if a bilateral arrangement allows for an amount of capacity to be exceeded in certain circumstances — the use of extra capacity by Australian carriers as so allowed; or

the use of an aircraft type, a seating plan or freight carrying capacity different to that provided for in a determination; or

(c)
the use of extra capacity to meet seasonal or other temporary and unusual demand for an international air service; or

(d)
for a small number of flights which form part of an international air service — the carriage of passengers or freight, or both, to and from places additional to the places normally served.

Delegation of powers and functions (Act s 27AB)

(1) For subsection 27AB (3) of the Act, the Commission may delegate a power or function to:

make a determination allocating available capacity under section 7 of the Act, if no more than 1 application is made for the capacity; and
