Alliance Airlines has signed a new five-year contract with Santos covering the oil and gas company’s operations in South Australia.

As part of the new deal, Alliance will start jet services from Adelaide to Santos’ oil and gas operations in the Cooper Basin.

“The initial requirement is for Alliance to operate between 10 and 16 services per week in its own right and to coordinate and manage airport operations and intra-field subcontracted flying,” Alliance said in a statement on Friday.


Alliance chief executive Lee Schofield said the new five-year contract – which includes both jet and turboprop operations and airport management – was won in partnership with Avmin Air Charter Specialists and would “provide Santos with a total package including ground support and airport management at both Moomba and Ballera”.

“This new contract adds to services that Alliance have provided to Santos in Queensland since 2006,” Schofield said in a statement.
