In response to growing concerns over freight services and patronage, funding has been allocated to support Sharp Airlines for six months and work will be undertaken to help increase passenger numbers.

Warrnambool City Council Mayor Tony Herbert was pleased with the outcome.

“We’re excited about what the next six months could yield for Sharp Airlines and tourism to the Great South Coast.”

The Andrews Government, Warrnambool City and Glenelg Shire Councils as well as other local agencies will work together to explore new flight options, accommodation and tour packages to draw tourists to attractions such as the Twelve Apostles, Tower Hill and Cape Bridgewater.
