In the 1990s Cobham brought airline safety standards to regional and remote area operations, through the introduction of airliners
such as the turboprop Bombardier DHC8 and British Aerospace BAe146 jet.
The company now operates 10 BAe 146 jets and four Bombardier
Dash 8 aircraft in Australia and Papua New Guinea.
Cobham has developed "turnkey" transportation systems, including airport management and reservations services, for major Australian
infrastructure projects such as Santos's Cooper Basin gas fields at Moomba and Ballera in the heart of Australia, Chevron's
Barrow Island operations and for the Ok-Tedi gold and copper mine in Papua New Guinea.
Cobham has also introduced fly-in fly-out (FIFO) services for major mining clients such as Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton in Western Australia.
