Cheaper flights for WA holiday makers

The cost of holidaying in Western Australia's top end has been slashed by a McGowan government scheme to boost tourism by cutting air fares.

From August 17, flights from Perth to Broome will be less than $200 one-way as part of a year-long-trial agreement between the state government and Qantas offering 29,400 cheap seats.

"In doing this, we will encourage more intrastate travel to regional WA, which will help to stimulate the state's economy and create jobs in the tourism and hospitality industries," Premier Mark McGowan said on Friday.
