Member for Mildura, Peter Crisp, has welcomed today’s announcement by Rex Airlines of their intent to restore a variety of air links in and out of Mildura.
The initiative will see Rex reinstate air links to Sydney and Adelaide and introduce a link to Broken Hill from 9 July, thus enhancing the tourism market for both Mildura and Broken Hill.
“Rex’s confidence in Mildura is a welcome boost to both business and tourism.
“The Victorian Coalition Government investment with Mildura Airport Pty Ltd to upgrade the airport terminal has acted as an investment catalyst to businesses wishing to invest in aviation services to Mildura and Rex has responded with the reintroduction of these services.
“The Coalition increased it’s initial $3M for the airport to $5M to ensure a prompt start to the upgrade project.
“This excellent news for the Mildura region and I welcome today’s announcement.” Mr Crisp stated.
