Ansett collapsed due to many reasons, these include corporate mis-management, an ageing fleet, the decline in the aviation industry after September the 11th and finally the lack of intervention by the Australian Government, coupled with the intervention of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commision.

Ansett Australia Limited was placed into administration on 12th September, 2001 and ceased operations on 14th September, 2001. During its administration brief budget services operated under the name Ansett Mark II, in order to pull investors to save the airline- Ansett Mark II used only the airlines Airbus A320s on domestic routes. Ansett's regional subsidary Kendell Airlines also operated limited services to regional locations not served by other carriers. A Melbourne based company called Tensa attempted to resurect the airline using all of its former fleet and former terminal buildings, dropping the name Australia from the title but continuing to use the Starmark branding. However, this plan failed due to Sydney Airport and Perth Airport both finding difficulty in Tensa's proposals causing them to not have approved Ansett's terminal leasing by the deadline needed. Immediately on the day of the deadline Ansett Mark II was forced to cease all operations in March, 2002. These were the final ever Ansett flights.
