Question Without Notice No. 664 asked in the Legislative Council on 25 June 2019 by Hon Peter Collier

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on


664. Hon PETER COLLIER to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:

I refer to the government's contract with Maroomba Airlines in relation to the King Air and Hawker XP aircraft.

(1) Was a new contract signed with Maroomba Airlines following the purchase of the two aircraft by the Western Australian government?

(2) What is the value of the contract and the length of the contract with Maroomba Airlines?

(3) Will the Premier list the terms and conditions of the contract, including the state government's entitlements under the contract?

(4) Will the Premier table the contract; and, if not, why not?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) No. A new contract was not signed with Maroomba Airlines following the purchase of two aircraft. In accordance with the existing contract with Maroomba Airlines, an extension of contract was offered for a period of approximately 12 months to provide service continuity whilst the current tender process is underway to procure an operations and maintenance contractor.

(2)–(4) In light of the current tender process for an operations and maintenance contractor, releasing this information at this time may have an adverse impact on this process.
