Maintenance of industry operational flexibility is most important in the consideration of the WA Government’s proposal to regulate mining industry charter flights, to convert to regular public transport services.
Charter flights are integral to resource sector operations, providing flexibility and a unique level of service that could not in many cases be achieved through RPT services.
The nature of the regional and remote operations undertaken throughout the industry require a heavy reliance on air transport, in the provision of timely and effective movement of personnel to and from operations.
Any interruption to existing air charter arrangements could adversely impact on shift and roster changes, aircraft availability and reduce current flexibility of schedules and services.
Applications are due by March 28.
