A loan from the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) will allow Alliance Airlines to create hundreds of new jobs for the maintenance of its fleet.
Federal Member for Capricornia, Michelle Landry said that the project is a boom for the regional economy.
“We expect that this facility will help Alliance to generate about $342 million over the next 30 years for our region,”
“We will see at least 100 jobs created during construction, and the fully operational facility will create 98 ongoing roles which is a capability that currently doesn’t exist here.”
The facility will create new businesses and job opportunities in other aviation related services such avionics, aerospace technologies, wheels, tyres, brakes and landing gear, engine maintenance, interiors and upholstery, and cabin accessories suppliers.
Alliance’s final investment decision is expected in October. For further information on available NAIF financing products and arrangements: https://naif.gov.au/.
