Bega Valley Shire Council would like to thank our Merimbula Airport Management Contractors, the local emergency services and Rex staff and crew for their swift and professional response to last night’s emergency incident at Merimbula Airport.
Upon receiving notification of the situation with Rex Flight ZL139, the Airport Emergency Plan (AEP) was immediately enacted and the plane safely landed.
The incident is now the subject of a Civil Aviation Safety Authority investigation, a debrief and review on the incident and the AEP will also be conducted.
All learnings from this incident will further inform Merimbula Airport procedures, policies and plans moving forward.
