Bailouts or bust for regional airfares in WA

The State Government must step in to save regional towns from airfare hikes.

The Western Australia Party is concerned about the effect on regional communities from the collapse of the Virgin Australia group and its local WA subsidiary, Virgin Australia Regional Airlines.

As Australia's largest state, air travel is critical to WA's regional towns for business, health and tourism at a fair price.

It is critical that the State Government step in and assist to facilitate another operation to take over Virgin airline's travel routes to guarantee competition in the air industry to keep prices as a fair level or regulate airfares in regional areas of Western Australia.
