Qantas is going to start flying to Gina Rinehart’s Roy Hill mine in Western Australia’s Pilbara region three times a week from August 13.
Roy Hill’s sealed 2.5km Ginbata air strip, according to the report, is certified by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and is capable of taking planes as big as Boeing 737-800s.
At first though, it’s just going to be 100-seat Fokker F100s ferrying workers to-and-from the mine.
