3 times recently the whole system has ground to a halt simply because taxis just stop wherever they like including in the middle of the road . Some one in authority should teach taxis how to park !!!.
Lol what do you expect from people who can’t drive, can barely speak English, have zero customer service skills, and who do illegal u turns with on coming traffic too..??
Coming from the inside, I can tell you there's plenty of them queued in the taxi holding area. I was there once and one dude was wearing thongs.

Rev forgot to mention "taxi drivers who park on clear ways and leave their cars in Bike lanes".

When there are updates, they will be posted here. Don't bump a thread unless you have something valuable to contribute.

A bit harsh Patrick for a discussion thread. Don't bite the newbies.

Right.

This site could stand to lighten up a bit.

If you ever get a chance to head down to the airport and maybe have a beer or a coffee talk to the people that work there. There are a few there that are in the know. As for the next airline to come to Adelaide, well...they'll probably keep that close to their chests as it is something a state government would want to announce first. In the meantime we can only speculate.

Cheers

Rex responds to Senate enquiry about their reliability by cutting services to Mt Gambier.

That response from Rex, if Indaily can be believed, is pretty immature.

Is that degree of emotion in business safe?

To be constructive though, maybe the State Government should charter the Flying Doctor for patient transfer.

QantasLink were tossing up between Whyalla and Mount Gambier before they eventually went with the former. It must have been sketchy for a while but I wonder if demand is picking up now that the steelworks have been saved.

We can only hope they'll take another look at the Mount - a relatively large, wealthy and densely-populated region with demand for travel to both Adelaide and Melbourne.

Any chatter of VA Regional looking at it?

Would Mt Gambier be capable of handling VARA's fleet (Fokker 100's and A320's)?

The ATR 72's operated by mainline VA would be a good fit though, if they were interested in the route.

My bad, forgot the ATR's got moved to mainline.

Rex's tantrum continues, axing 10 flights from the Mt Gambier service.
