With aviation support beginning to expire, and borders beginning the slow process of reopening, the Morrison Government must lay out their plan to support Australian aviation.
Aviation across Australia is not going to snap back to life mid-next week when the Domestic Aviation Network Support program expires. Some essential routes are going to need support for far longer than that.
As the process of reopening continues, the aviation sector needs certainty about what support will be available to keep planes in the air.
Extending support for essential routes is just one small element of what the Morrison Government could do to support Australian aviation.
The Morrison Government has denied support to airports, denied JobKeeper to Dnata workers, allowed Virgin Australia to fall into administration and failed to act as Qantas sacked thousands of workers.
The Morrison Government urgently needs a plan for aviation.
