Virgin Blue Alliance with Skywest Airlines
Aussie regional Skywest Airlines has entered into an exclusive 10 year strategic alliance with Virgin Blue.
In its initial service to the Australian regions, Skywest will operate up to 18 new Virgin Blue-branded turbo jet aircraft to a number of existing and new destinations. The agreement also includes the ability for Skywest to code-share on Virgin Blue’s domestic network.
18 Aircraft is a massive addition to any fleet. Richard Branson has a plan. He is investing in the future of mining and he is not afraid to put big dollars towards it.
I am confident he has done his homework and this serves as a reminder of the very bright future of mining in Australia. It will never fail because there is so much big money invested in it.
Skywest expects the first aircraft will arrive mid 2011 with four Virgin Blue-branded aircraft in operation by the end of the year. It will not own the aircraft but will be a service provider and code-share partner. The operating arrangements between Virgin Blue and Skywest are initially for a term of ten years.
A positive outlook and a confidence boost to anyone thinking of mining as a career. Preparation is important. Be sure your resume is good enough to get you past the first hurdle. It needs to be complete and focussed on your ultimate career goals.
Make sure you jump on any opporunity to rise…. take for instance this new partnership. They will need new captains, air staff, construction crews, ground staff, new airports, new hotels…..the list goes on.
