New airline takes to skies

THE first regionally-based airline that will link major North West towns has been launched.

Broome-based NorthWest Regional will fly six days a week between Broome, Port Hedland and Karratha and twice a week to Exmouth.

For the first time since July, passengers will be able to commute directly within the North West without having to fly via Perth.

The expanded service forms part of a longer-term plan to increase regional air services and improve infrastructure as outlined in the recently released document Air Transport Directions for WA: the Way Ahead.

The priorities for air travel in the North West are seen as access, infrastructure, planning and development, aviation and tourism, air freight, aviation training, aviation safety and coordination.

The WA Govern-ment will provide the new airline with a $75,000 annual contribution and local governments will give concessions in landing fees.
