LOBBYING has started to allow Skytrans planes to land at the Oakey Army Aviation Centre during extreme weather events.
Last week low-lying cloud caused widespread disruptions to the airline's services, including its recently launched daily flights between Toowoomba and Sydney.
But Skytrans commercial manager Steve Jones said the disruptions were not confined to Toowoomba.
"The weather system was quite extreme and there were flights cancelled as far afield as Mackay and Mt Isa involving all airlines, not just Skytrans," he said.
Mr Jones said Skytrans' schedule had been set with Toowoomba's unpredictable climate in mind.
He said no early-morning landings took place in the Garden City and planes scheduled to take off early arrived at the Toowoomba Airport the night prior.
Mr Jones admitted the airline would welcome the opportunity to land at Oakey when poor weather restricted access to Toowoomba.
At the moment, Skytrans planes can only land at Oakey in the event of an emergency.
"While not always the case, in some cases, you can get into Oakey when you can't get into Toowoomba," Mr Jones said.
"It would certainly be better than our alternative, which is to land in Brisbane and bus passengers to Toowoomba."
Member for Groom Ian Macfarlane said after discussing the problems with Mayor Paul Antonio last week, it was his intention to meet with the Department of Defence.
"I will have further discussions with Cr Antonio about this in the coming days and following that it's my intention to meet with defence personnel in order to work out a solution that is acceptable to both defence and the Toowoomba Skytrans service."
Meanwhile, Toowoomba Regional Council has decided not to charge Skytrans fees and changes for use of the Toowoomba Airport for this financial year for its Toowoomba-Sydney service.
