Show close time for other time zones
The Program contributes to the Australian Government’s continued economic response to the Coronavirus, providing financial assistance to Australia’s tourism and aviation sectors to assist with the impact on the aviation sector from COVID-19. The Program was announced as part of the Tourism and Aviation’s Flight Path To Recovery announcement, found at:
The objective of the program is to generate a further 800,000 fares connecting visitors to these tourist-dependent regions over the Program Travel Period. The Program will drive more domestic tourists to travel to nominated tourism regions that have been significantly impacted by the loss of international tourists. This will support jobs and have an economic multiplier effect, as travellers spend money on accommodation, food and activities in these regions.
The tickets will be available for purchase under the Program from 1 April to 31 July 2021, to support designated regions and on eligible Regular Public Transport (RPT) air routes, for travel up to and including 30 September 2021.
Grant Assistance is available for eligible RPT airlines operating on eligible routes to the identified tourism regions. Assistance is available to support the sale of discounted across eligible routes; and to provide additional air capacity on selected routes to support the objective.
