Tak­ing off

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

AS A share­holder / ratepayer, I have watched our air­port un­der­per­form for years.

Work­ing with air­line man­age­ment con­sul­tant Beat Ritz­mann 20 years ago I saw the pos­si­bil­i­ties the com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion of this com­mu­nity as­set would pro­vide.

It is with ap­plause that now we may fi­nally see our air­port take off and pro­vide not only pas­sen­gers to en­joy our area and our best pro­duce shipped off to high in­come mar­kets but also the fi­nan­cial re­turn that we ratepayer share­hold­ers ex­pect.

Now that there is a firm plan in place that ‘saves’ our air­port, can those op­posed stop your cam­paign of mis­in­for­ma­tion and let the ma­jor­ity get on with mak­ing our air­port the suc­cess it should have been be­fore now.
