Green light for Antarctic trial flights. 01/03/2006. ABC News Online

Federal Environment Minister Ian Campbell says trial flights between Hobart and Antarctica should start later this year.

Work has begun on a runway to land long-range aircraft 60 kilometres inland from Casey Station.

Today in Canberra the Minister was shown one of two planes that has returned from the inaugural summer season, transporting scientists between Australia's Antarctic bases.

Senator Campbell says the air link puts Australia's Antarctic program on the brink of an exciting new era.
