Busselton Margaret River Airport International Air Freight Survey

Do you currently export or would you like to export your produce to international markets? Do you support a combined passenger airfreight service out of Busselton Margaret River Regional Airport?

Combining underbelly cargo with passenger services helps to build demand in international markets and reduces the risks to entering new markets.

The City of Busselton needs your input to build a strong case to attract international airlines! The City is asking you to complete this short survey to help us capture the information and data that supports air freight services out of the South West Region, direct to South East Asian destinations, including Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia.
