The Pilbara Regional Council’s North West Flight Network proposal has lost support tonight after the Town of Port Hedland council decided to opt out of the Memorandum of Understanding.

In September 2017 the Town of Port Hedland endorsed a MoU which outlined a proposal to provide financial subsidy for the private aviation company, Aviair, to charter inter regional flights throughout the North West.

After reviewing the North West Flight Network Business Case, the council opted to reject the proposal due to the Town’s conclusion that the NWFN business case not being able to show a clear and tangible benefit to rate payers and the wider community.

The Town now joins the Shire of Ashburton to reject the proposal.
