Aircraft disinsection procedures for flights into Australia and New Zealand

Schedule of aircraft disinsection procedures for flights into Australia and New Zealand

This schedule has been prepared in cooperation between the Department of Agriculture (the department) and the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) New Zealand for the regulation of disinsection requirements of aircraft flying into Australia and New Zealand.

This schedule (in the link below) is issued as a guide to enable airline personnel to develop detailed cabin and hold procedures which are appropriate for destroying pest and disease vectors that could be present on aircraft flying into Australia and New Zealand.

The department and MPI work in partnership to verify compliance with each other's disinsection requirements and any other undertakings as needed.

Disinsection Spray Rates

Please refer to the Spray Rate Listing (in the link below) for the amount of spray required for each aircraft type. If an aircraft is not listed in the Spray Rate Listing, use the Spray Rates Calculator Tool.

Disinsection Videos

The department and MPI have developed a series of videos to demonstrate to airlines and disinsection applicators the different types of disinsection methods and how they must be applied.

The videos cover the range of currently approved aircraft disinsection treatment methods for aircraft arriving in Australia and New Zealand.

The videos represent how the department and MPI expect aircraft disinsection treatments to be applied, in the manner approved in the Schedule of Aircraft Disinsection Procedures for Flights into Australia and New Zealand.

Failure to apply the treatments correctly can result aircraft having to be retreated or restricting treatments using another approved treatment method.

Aircraft operators/airlines are encouraged to promote the use of these videos by relevant cabin crew, ground staff or contracted service providers having responsibilities for application of disinsection treatments and the correct methods of application.
