Bathurst Regional Council has selected a preferred provider to service the Bathurst to Sydney route from Bathurst Airport.
Mayor, Robert Taylor said Council called for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from passenger airlines in May after Rex Airlines confirmed it would no longer service the route.
“Council has considered the EOIs received and has chosen a preferred provider and will now negotiate with the company about the airline’s proposal,” he said.
“Discussions will include flight schedules and aircraft type.
“Interest has remained from business, health and tourist sectors for a return to a daily RPT service which is perceived as necessary for Bathurst to identify as an important regional destination.”
