City of Kar­ratha coun­cil­lors have ap­proved the ex­ten­sion of full­strength al­co­hol sales at Kar­ratha Air­port while in the same breath slap­ping down the sale of to­bacco.

Full-strength al­co­hol will be­come a per­ma­nent fea­ture at the air­port af­ter a trial pe­riod be­gin­ning at the start of the year en­coun­tered no is­sues.

North West Avi­a­tion Ser­vices and Skys­tar did not sup­port the trial ini­tially, but have now changed tack to sup­port the con­tin­u­a­tion of full­strength al­co­hol ser­vice.

Qan­tas and Citic, the other two stake­hold­ers that op­posed the trial, did not pro­vide a re­sponse.

The mo­tion was car­ried unan­i­mously by coun­cil­lors.

The is­sue of to­bacco sales was a more con­tested one, with Coun­cil­lors Fiona White-Har­tig, Marg Bertling and Bart Par­sons vot­ing against a mo­tion to deny the ser­vice.

The mo­tion not to ap­prove to­bacco sales was car­ried seven votes to three.
