WA-based Nexus Airlines has offered an early Christmas present to WA families — free flights for children across its WA and Northern Territory routes for the next several months. Under the promotion, up to three children aged 12 or under per booking can fly for free if travelling with a paying adult. Nexus Airlines managing director Michael McConachy said he was pleased to be able to offer this family friendly initiative. “This campaign further builds on that by making travel for families even more affordable than ever before,” he said. “By allowing kids to fly for free over summer and into the Easter school holidays Nexus Airlines hopes to connect you and your family to your next holiday.” The offer is valid until April 14 for both one-way and return flight bookings. The promotion has been backed by Tourism WA and Tourism NT, in a bid to help generate tourism opportunities between WA and the Top End. The Kids Fly Free campaign cannot be used in conjunction with the resident fare from Geraldton to Perth, which sees return tickets for locals capped at $199 one-way. NT Tourism and Hospitality Minister Joel Bowden said: “This announcement gives Territory families access to more affordable travel options connecting regional Australia and remote centres across WA and the NT.” Nexus Airlines launched in Geraldton in July with connecting flights to Perth, Karratha, Port Hedland and Broome offering much-needed competition in the local market.
