Emerging Australian carrier Strategic Airlines is set to launch two new services that will open up the east coast of Australia to the Pilbara region of Western Australia and provide the west with greater access to the east coast.

 From 3 August 2010, Strategic will fly weekly between Brisbane and Port Hedland on Tuesdays, with the intention of increasing to two services each week in the near future.

Strategic will also launch weekly return services between Melbourne and Port Hedland from 3 August 2010.

“The services between Port Hedland, Brisbane and Melbourne will provide faster and more affordable travel between the east and west coasts, give resource sector workers and regional residents greater access to these capital cities and help drive much needed human resources into the Pilbara,” said Strategic Airlines’ Head of Commercial Damien Vasta.  “The Pilbara is one of the economic powerhouses of the nation but for too long the cost and length of travel for east coast residents to the region has been an obstacle.”

The new routes will be serviced by Strategic’s 156-seat A320 aircraft in dual configuration consisting of 12 business class seats and 144 economy seats.

 Introductory sale fares of A$283 one-way Brisbane-Port Hedland and A$283 one-way Melbourne-Port Hedland will be available online from 24 May 2010.
