QLink has retained BNE-BCI/BKQ-LRE and BNE-RMA-CTL. With all LRE and RMA sectors to be on the Q400.

Skytrans TMR Contracts

Transport and Main Roads - regional Government runs. Without those subsidised routes, Skytrans will find it almost impossible to survive. Sad for the hard working staff but inevitable due mainly to the ineffective and egotistical 'leadership' over the past few years which has brought them to this conclusion.

For those not aware Sir John Wild passed away late yesterday, in the grand scheme of things made a wonderful contribution to aviation among many other things in PNG. The family will obviously be grieving, How about you all stop putting the boot in for the time being?

It's the Roma Council that wants QF. Cando Campbell has nothing to do with it....

Agreed Chazdat. What a joke! TBM I think you'll find Campbell had just as much to do with it as the council did.

Be very interesting to see how many the RMA council members have been 'gifted' QF Platinum/Chairmans Lounge access.

Great that we have opened up that busy route of TSV-CNJ-ISA to deregulation, but the poor folks at RMA can enjoy greater frequency than SYD gets at times, but airfares that would get you to Perth.

We get the government we deserve they say...this moab looks Sir Joh look squeaky clean!
