More Direct Flights
and More Trade Offices

More direct flights and new trade offices will increase visitors into Adelaide and exports out of Adelaide – supporting businesses and creating more jobs for South Australians.

What we'll do

A re-elected Marshall Liberal Government will support export and tourism businesses to grow and create jobs by establishing an $18 million Direct Flights Fund and opening new trade offices in key international markets.

We will work with airlines to secure more direct routes into and out of our target international destinations including Japan, the US, New Zealand, Vietnam and Singapore.

This will increase visitors into Adelaide and exports out of Adelaide – tourists fly in for a holiday, and fly out in a plane full of South Australian products.

We will also open three new international trade offices in key markets – Germany, India and South East Asia – creating new opportunities and markets for South Australian businesses and local jobs for South Australians.

This will build on the success of our trade office strategy which has already been hugely successful, driving new trade deals throughout the COVID-19 crisis and seeing merchandise exports reach over $13 billion for the first time ever.

What it means for you
