Mineral Resources has announced a new air charter service aimed at improving the travel experience of its remote workforce. 

MinRes Air is set to provide charter services from a dedicated terminal in the Perth Airport precinct, with first flights planned to support employees travelling to the new Onslow Iron project in the Pilbara.

MinRes said that MinRes Air marks the next step in the company’s mission to redefine the employee experience and set new industry standards for facilities, food and flights.

MinRes is introducing resort-style accommodation at its Onslow Iron project, alongside upgrades to services and amenities at its existing villages.

MinRes Air is expected to launch in the second half of 2024. Seat capacity on the aircraft will be reduced from the standard 138 seats down to 108, aiming to provide a more comfortable journey.

Executive General Manager People Logistics and Facilities, Bethanie Ibrahim, said the initiative will offer an elevated travel experience for its fly-in fly-out employees.

“Our focus is on providing more flight flexibility to our remote operations and allow our people to travel to and from site at attractive times five days a week.

“This industry-first investment will help improve safety and productivity while ensuring our people are transported as quickly and as conveniently as possible.”

In January 2024, MinRes also launched direct flights between Brisbane and Wodgina and Ken’s Bore to provide flexibility for employees living on the east coast.
