AIR SERVICES TO LISMORE MUST REMAIN

Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George MP today expressed concern about statements made by Regional Express relating to passengers services to Lismore.

“I understand why Rex is reviewing its Lismore to Sydney service schedule in light of declining passenger numbers.

“Rex is the only airline which provides a direct daily return business service. This service is most important to the community, particularly for business, as it means people can travel and return home without the extra expense of overnight accommodation.

“I would be very disappointed if Rex were to change the current arrangements. It would be a huge blow to Lismore and the surrounding communities.

“Any changes to the direct business flights would devastate not only passenger numbers through the Lismore Airport, but also the need for the daily return service,” Mr George said.
