Resource downturn hits NW regional air route
Written on the 25 April 2016Airnorth will next month axe its weekly return services linking Karratha and Port Hedland to Broome, Kununurra and Darwin.
The Bristow Helicopters owned company blamed a downturn in the resource sector within the Pilbara and said "the viability of the services has been subject to ongoing review"."Unfortunately our analysis over the past few months has indicated declining passenger demand for these services and as a result the weekly service will cease," an Airnorth spokeswoman said.
The carrier said it would contact passengers affected by the cancellations and that refunds would be available for passengers.
The last Airnorth service to the Pilbara (Karratha and Port Hedland) will be Tuesday May 17, 2016.
