GOVERNMENT TO LAND NEW FLIGHT SERVICE FOR FAR NORTH WEST
14 January 2019
Passengers will soon be able to book flights to see their loved ones in Bourke, Cobar, Walgett or Lightning Ridge for the first time in years, following the release of a multi-million dollar tender to secure a new air services provider in the Far North West.
This new air service provider will revolutionise travel for communities in the Far North West who have had become accustomed to having a drive up to four hours to the nearest airport in Dubbo to fly on to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle and Canberra.
Flights could be operating as soon as March or April 2019.
