Fly In, Fly Out

Fly in, fly out, sometimes abbreviated to FIFO, refers to the practice of rostering workers on shift patterns that allow them to fly in to a remote site to work for intensive periods, and then fly home for an extended break. It is favoured by resources companies when the cost of establishing and sustaining a local settlement to support the site’s workforce is higher than the cost of commuting, and where employees prefer to live in their original homes rather than move to a local settlement.
