Signs are good

Rex Airlines wants to add four more flights to its Broken Hill network.
The city’s Sydney and Adelaide routes both had a big jump in passenger numbers last year, with as many as 14 per cent more people flying.
While across the Regional Express Airlines (Rex) network passenger numbers fell by 1.4 per cent, the Broken Hill to Sydney leg rose 10 per cent to about 14,000.
The big jump was on the city to Adelaide leg with about 2,000 more people flying, bringing that route’s total seat sales to 17,000.
Rex, the sole commercial airline servicing the city, said it hoped to increase its early-week Adelaide flights to three but admitted that could be some time away.
“The next logical steps are increasing the Monday and Tuesday services from two return services to three return services which makes for three return services Monday to Friday,” the airline said.
“When demand increases to make this economically viable it will be considered as part of the ongoing network reviews.
“The average (occupancy) ... was below 63 per cent which does not warrant additional capacity ... (but) we as an airline are motivated to fly more.”
General manager for Rex’s network strategy Warrick Lodge said more mining activity boosted the city’s passenger numbers with Rex adding some ad hoc flights to serve passengers attending several large local conferences.
All in all 3,000 extra passengers flew through the city in the six months.
Mr Lodge said its network-wide passenger numbers were affected by increased airport charges at two regional airports, Burnie and Mt Gambier, which brought capacity down.
“The vast majority of our services went up including Broken Hill,” Mr Lodge said.
“It is showing strong signs and that’s positive for Broken Hill.”
While Mr Lodge admitted the figures were being compared to 2009’s global-financial-crisis-induced depressed level, he said there was growth occurring.
“We went through a period of (depression) during the GFC and with the pilot shortage ... but now we’re back on track and seeing some good signs of growth,” he said.
“We hope that we can continue to grow Broken Hill well into the future.”
Rex, which flies to 35 destinations in five states, said Broken Hill made up less than five per cent of its total passenger numbers.
The company posted a $12.2 million before tax profit, down 5.4 per cent, amid a five per cent jump in fuel costs and a 3.8 per cent increase in other costs.
In its half-yearly financial report for the six months to December 31, released this week, Rex showed a 1.4 per cent overall drop in passenger numbers.

Dash gathers pace

Originally published: Saturday, 26th February, 2011

It’s not quite the race that stops a nation but you could say that the YMCA Living Desert Dash is the event that gets Broken Hill moving.
A small army of participants will set out this year for a day of running, jogging or walking from the Living Desert to Picton Oval on Sunday, March 27.
The event attracts entrants from all walks of life for serious competition, or just a lot of fun.
There will be a festive atmosphere at the finish line at Picton Oval with food and stalls, activities and exhibitions.
“Who knows, with the whole community behind it and in future years we can begin to attract some of the big name runners while at the same time developing the festival atmosphere,” committee member Steve Burton said.
“It is, after all, a fun-run and it’s fun, not fame, that motivates most of the entrants.”
Mr Burton also said registrations for the annual event have been strong and the arrangements were going well.
From this year on, anyone who takes part will become inaugural members of the “Living Desert Dash Legends Register”.
“Over the years and with further events, this list will of course thin out. The only way to stay on the ‘Legends Register’ is to be there each and every year.
“In years to come these ‘Living Desert Legends’ will be specifically recognised via a distinctive award system,” Mr Burton said.
Participants can choose to start at 8am for a 10km run or walk, or 8:30am for a 5km run or walk. There is also a short walk for children.
People can pick up entry forms from the YMCA.

Break-in arrest

Originally published: Tuesday, 15th February, 2011

A suspected burglar crawled under a police vehicle in the early hours of yesterday morning in an alleged attempt to evade capture.

Police had stopped and spoken to the 39-year-old man after seeing him walking near the corner of Cobalt and Chloride streets and carrying a back pack about 3am.

He allegedly became aggressive and a struggle ensued between him and the officers, the police said.

After a short of time he broke free and crawled underneath the police vehicle, they said.

The officers tried to drag him out, they said, but eventually resorted to giving him a burst of pepper spray.

He emerged from under the vehicle and ran off but was caught a short distance away, police said.

Another short struggle ensued before he was handcuffed and locked in the back of the police vehicle.

When police searched the man and his backpack they allegedly found a small amount of cannabis, some cash and other items believed to be from break and enter offences committed in Broken Hill.

A number of knives, a razor blade, a pair of scissors, electrical equipment and a quantity of jewellery and documentation was also allegedly found.

Police said they believed these were also the proceeds from recent burglaries.

He has been charged with a large number of offences and will soon face the Local Court. 

A recent increase in break-ins and stealing from cars in the city prompted police to last week issue a warning to residents to secure their homes and property.

LAC Crime Manager Detective Inspector Mick Stoltenberg said it appeared the intruders were after cash and urged residents to report any suspicious behaviour or people.

Police were forced to issue a second warning on Sunday after another four homes were targeted over the weekend.
