Federal Member for Forrest Nola Marino has welcomed the announcement that Jetstar will be facilitating direct flights from Melbourne to Busselton.
Mrs Marino said the announcement would not only benefit Busselton, but the entire South West.
“I have secured significant Federal Government funding for the airport and I am pleased these flights have been announced,” Mrs Marino said.
“These flights will enable more people to come and enjoy the fantastic opportunities we have available here in our South West.
“This announcement, as well as the Busselton Freight Hub, will help to promote our region and businesses to a far wider market.”
The first flights are expected to take off from March 25.
