Tourism and Aviation Network Support Program


On 1 April 2021, the Australian Government launched the Tourism Aviation Network Support program. The program will:

  • Help drive tourism demand for interstate travel, and support economic recovery in regional Australia.
  • Halve the price of over 800,000 airfares to select tourism regions.
