The Territory Government will immediately deliver a $2 million support package to retain the Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) aviation services, which are essential for our regional and remote towns in the Territory.
The Territory aviation sector has been significantly impacted by the necessary decision to limit travel in and out of remote communities to essential personnel only.
Continuing the supply of essential goods and services will ensure the protection and support of our communities under these trying circumstances.
Although the coronavirus infection rate in the Territory remains very low, the economic impact of this pandemic is already hitting many Territorians and sectors, including businesses and industries.
The $2 million support package will ensure minimum RPT services continue.
All RPT operators have worked with the Northern Territory Government to provide valuable information to understand the extent of their situations.
