26th March 2020 - Open Letter to the Deputy Prime Minister from Regional Airlines
The undersigned are compelled to make a united plea for the Federal Government to provide urgent financial assistance to regional airline operators in the face of the present COVID-19 crisis.
The Federal Government's imposition of air travel restrictions and lock-downs by several states as part of its COVID-19 containment strategy has resulted in airlines being left with little option but to suspend all or nearly all of their scheduled regular passenger transport (RPT) flights. Further travel bans may result in complete cancellation of these remaining flights along with any air-charter operations.
