Regional Aviation welcomes further government assistance

Written by Steve Campbell on -

The RAAA welcomes the announcement by the Federal Government today on further support for the aviation industry. The continuation of the Regional Aviation Network Subsidy in particular will help support some of our member airlines to continue to allow connectivity with regional centers at a time when the routes would just not be viable. The continuation of the Airservices fee waivers and the regional airport screening subsidy will also go a long way to help keep some regional routes viable and the flow of essential medical and freight supplies.

The aviation and tourism industry has been hardest hit so we welcome the measures by the government to boost domestic and regional tourism, particularly as the international borders remain closed.
