Aviation is an integral part of the social and economic development of the State. It is a key driver for jobs, economic growth and diversification for the State through:

  • visitor economy
  • trade
  •  international education
  • freight etc. 

Tourism WA actively engages in aviation route development that strategically aligns with the State’s priority and emerging visitor markets.  By working with airports, airlines, government and industry partners both domestically and internationally, Tourism WA is able to secure new routes or grow air capacity to help make Western Australia more accessible. 
Given the size of the State, regional aviation is a critical mode of transport. As well as promoting WA internationally as Australia’s western gateway, Tourism WA also seeks to help make leisure travel to the State's regions more accessible and more affordable. Tourism WA works with partners to develop sustainable initiatives in these areas.
