Because of the 'fly in, fly out' (FIFO) contracts that many mineworkers operate on - and the steady flow of consultants and other service providers coming in and out from Perth - the airport in Kal is an unexpectedly busy place.

The good news is that there are many more flights between Kal and Perth than you would usually expect for what is, after all, only a medium-sized country town. The bad news is that mining companies block book seats to match their work rosters, so there is often pressure on seat availability.

Thus, if you're planning to fly into or out of Kal, make sure that you book your flight well in advance. Also don't expect too much in the way of cheap fares for the same reason as the flight operators already have enough bums on seats not to need to discount.
