Farewell to the Skywest (Virgin Australia) Fokker 50 : Part 2 Albany to Perth

This post follows on from Part 1. This second report was for my return to Perth from Albany, on the Virgin Australia (Skywest) Fokker 50.

FLIGHT 2: VA2526 ~ PERTH to ALBANY ~ 1525/1640  ~ Fokker 50 VH-FNH  ~ SEAT 9G

I arrived at the airport a bit over an hour before departure and checked in for my flight to Perth, I was continuing on to Geraldton so I got the boarding pass for both sectors. Then it was through security where I was amazed to see that it took 3 security staff to process this small flight. It must be a costly process, and is something REX manages to avoid with it's smaller Saab 340 aircraft since they took over the route earlier this year.
