King Island Airport to come in line with rest of Australia
As community rate payers, we are contributing 23cents in every rate dollar to the King Island Airport. A loss in excess of $470,000 in FY17/18 is unacceptable and unsustainable. We will now align ourselves with normal commercial management of a Regional Australian Airport. A modest fee structure will be progressively introduced from FY18/19. Rather than our community rate payers subsidising all Island visitors to such a high degree, from 1 October 2018 a passenger fee and increased landing charges will be introduced at our Airport.
