BHP is making seats available to the general public on its Alliance
Airlines charter services to Port Hedland.

The dedicated community seats will be available on select Alliance Airlines RPT-charter flights between Perth and Port Hedland on a trial basis over the next six months at a set price of $349 each way.

Our research suggests you’ll struggle to find a cheaper flight to WA’s top end. At the time of writing Qantas and Virgin are offering one-way flights for around $1500.

A BHP spokesperson said that following the easing of physical distancing requirements on flights, BHP would offer up to 50 seats a week each way between Perth and Port Hedland.

Passengers would need to follow BHP’s COVID screening procedures prior to boarding and masks would be required on flights. Seats can be booked via the Alliance Airlines website from 26th June for flights starting Monday 29th June.
