$200,000 a week spent for asylum fares to and from Christmas Island

ALMOST $200,000 a week is being spent on charter flights to ferry asylum seekers and federal staff to and from Christmas Island to ease pressure on the overcrowded off-shore detention centre.


New figures on the cost of the Government's border protection policy reveal it has been forced to double the number of charter flights on and off the island this year, to an average of one every five days.

The cost of the aircraft has also more than trebled in just 10 months to $8.2 million, or $134,000 a flight. And it is forecast to keep rising, with the Government admitting it will cost an extra $8.1 million next year.

According to the latest figures - detailing the cost of flying asylum seekers from the island to 12 locations on the mainland, including Sydney - in the 10 months to April 30, 62 aircraft were chartered to carry 6500 people to and from Christmas Island.

In the 2008-09 financial year 32 charter flights carrying 2500 people to and from the island cost $2.7 million - an average of $84,000 a flight.

But the latest figures do not include the recent transfer of 30 Sri Lankan, Afghani and Iranian family groups - 86 asylum seekers in total - from the island to the former mining camp in Leonora, in Western Australia. See full story HERE

Rebellion in the wind?
Gillard to dump 1500 male asylum seekers on Northam!
As a generous people we are more than happy to continue to help persecuted individuals or groups in their own countries, or in the next nearest neighbouring country. But be flooded with Asylum seekers in our own country – never!

Julia Gillard has no mandate whatsoever to place 1500 asylum seekers in the Northam Military camp, or anywhere else in Western Australia for that matter. The fact that the camp is Commonwealth territory is irrelevant. That camp, like every other square meter of this nation, belongs to the people.  The Commonwealth is the servant of the people, not its master. We refuse to accept these so-called asylum seekers.
