Western Australia gets new charter service

Skywest has agreed with Rio Tinto through its subsidiary Pilbara Iron to operate a scheduled air charter service for the Brockman and Marandoo mines in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. 

Advent Air Chairman, Jeff Chatfield said: “A scheduled charter contract with a major mining house such as Pilbara Iron for a term of two years provides Skywest with the opportunity to more fully utilize the existing fleet and to contemplate further expansion of services. Skywest will continue to pursue scheduled charter contracts in the West Australian resources sector.”
