Deliveries of The West Australian and The Sunday Times to the north of the State have been impacted as a result of aircraft groundings linked to the coronavirus crisis.

Qantas and Virgin have now grounded internal WA flights on weekends with immediate effect.

This means the Saturday edition of The West Australian will not be able to be delivered to Broome, Derby, Port Hedland, Kununurra, Paraburdoo and Tom Price.

Karratha, Newman and Meekatharra will still get the Saturday edition but it will be delivered on Sundays.

The Sunday Times will no longer be able to be delivered to Kununurra, Derby, Paraburdoo and Tom Price.

Broome and Port Hedland will still get The Sunday Times but it will be delivered on Mondays.

The changes take effect immediately.
