Western Australia Government to evaluate cause of high airfares on regional routes

    Western Australia (WA) Government plans to evaluate the cause of high airfares on regional routes in WA and offer recommendations to improve the situation (The West Australian, 20-Jun-2017). Broome Airport CEO Paul McSweeney said the main reason is low traffic volume on these regional routes and Broome Airport retains competitive aeronautical fees despite the “high operating costs in this region”.
