Region. Richmond for commercial use

The Tourism Industry Council is pleased that its views have been heard and taken into account with regards to the use of the Richmond RAAF base as a commercial operation, the NSW general manager, Andrew Jefferies, said. His comment follows the federal government’s announcement that detailed investigative studies into the social, economic and environmental impacts for the suitability of Wilton as an airport site and the Richmond RAAF Base for limited commercial operations. “The Council has previously advocated for the use of Richmond to be used for low cost carrier operations, following upon the success of Avalon Airport, west of Melbourne, Newcastle and Gold Coast Airports,” he said.
