Funding


The costs of the regulatory service and oversight activities of the SACAA are funded from mainly three revenue streams, namely -

  1. A passenger safety charge that is collected by airline operators on behalf of the SACAA from departing scheduled flight passengers (considered an indirect source);

  2. An aviation fuel levy collected by wholesale distributors from entities not covered by the passenger safety charge (considered an indirect source); and

  3. "User Fees" which include mainly licence and approval and other regulatory service fees (considered a direct source).

A fourth revenue stream namely an annual grant from the National Department of Transport is intended to cover the costs of investigations by a department into civil aviation incidents and accidents on behalf of the National Department of Transport .

During the 2014/15 financial year the percentage contributions of the various revenue streams to the total SACAA revenue of R449,561,000 were as follows –  

 


The process to adjust revenue stream rates is regulated by legislation and include consultation with industry through the Civil Aviation Regulation Committee (CARCOM), consideration of comment from general public upon a Government  Gazette, approval by the Minister of Transport and consent of the Minister of Finance. The history of the various revenue stream rates since the establishment of the SACAA in 1998 is:
