Additional IOT passenger and freight services

Further to my post on 22 April 2021, the Australian Government has now scheduled a number of additional IOT air services to help meet continued strong demand for both freight and passenger services to #Christmas and #cocos (Keeling) Islands.

In addition to the new passenger flight scheduled for 15 May 2021, the Government will underwrite an additional passenger service from Perth to Christmas Island (CI) to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands (CKI) on Saturday, 17 July.

I would like to thank Virgin Australia for scheduling this additional service in what is an extremely busy period for domestic travel. Further details regarding the flight, including departure and arrival times, will be available shortly at virginaustralia.com.

With an improved fuel situation on both CI and CKI, the Government now has greater capacity to offer additional air freight services to the IOT. These services are underwritten by the Australian Government, and are also contingent on crewing and aircraft availability from Toll Global Express.

I am pleased to announce the following additional freight services to August 2021:
14 May 2021 Perth to Christmas Island to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands
11 June 21 Perth to Christmas Island to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands
9 July 21 Perth to Christmas Island to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands
6 Aug 21 Perth to Christmas Island

The Government will continue to monitor and adjust air service capacity as required, noting current strong demand and high traveller numbers.

With the demand this should become more frequent, and not when it hits desperate times. But still good news

That’s great news for both islands!

Fab! This is great news.
