Australia’s Cobham Launches New Route In Western Australia
Cobham Aviation Services Australia (Cobham) has launched a regular charter service to the Sunrise Dam Gold Mine in southeastern Western Australia.
Cobham says in a statement it is providing six return flights per week from Perth to transport more than 600 workers to and from the Sunrise Dam Gold Mine, using Embraer E-190s and De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Dash 8-400s.
The Sunrise Dam Gold Mine is 220 km northeast of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, a city in the Goldfields–Esperance region of Western Australia.
Mining company AngloGold Ashanti Australia owns and operates the gold mine, says the airline.
Tim Pirga, Cobham business development director, says Cobham is looking to add additional E-190s and Dash 8-400s to its fleet to meet the increasing demand in the fly-in fly-out (FIFO) sector, as well as for ad hoc charter flights.
