Mining

Diggers & Dealers - it's a wrap!

Diggers n Dealers Cobham

We were thrilled to attend Australia’s leading mining forum, Diggers & Dealers, held in Western Australia’s Kalgoorlie on 2-4 August.

We flew a special VIP charter flight using one of our Q400 aircraft to the event, hosting key clients and supporters of Cobham including representatives from energy and resource companies, industry service providers, television and print media, and aviation specialists that support FIFO.

We spent a busy few days engaging with industry stakeholders to better understand how we can shape our service offering to meet the evolving FIFO charter expectations of our client base.

It was enlightening to hear about the latest developments in the sector including details on how our clients will be reducing emissions associated with mining production into the future.

Cobham has invested early in fleet replacement to support our clients on this journey, as our Q400 aircraft produces 30% less emissions than other 50-80 seat aircraft in the FIFO market.

It was great to see the industry we support stay strong in these challenging times, with great projections into the future across all commodities.

Thanks for having us, until next time!
