Posted 16 March 2017 · Add Comment

Bristow's Airnorth will expand direct jet services between Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport and Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport (Wellcamp Airport) in Toowoomba from 8 May, 2017.



Initially six additional flights will operate each week between Melbourne and Toowoomba and this will be boosted in June by a further two weekly services.

Airnorth’s chief executive officer, Mr Daniel Bowden said the new services were designed with Melbourne’s business customers in mind.

“Many business travellers need same day or overnight flight options and were keen to take advantage of Airnorth’s faster non-stop jet service.

“This will give Melbourne originating customers the opportunity to complete same day travel trips to and from Wellcamp Airport everyday.

“Since launching our services to Wellcamp Airport in March 2016 our customers have been delighted with the reliability of our services, the on-board catering and the overall comfort of our 76-seat Embraer E170 jet,” Mr Bowden said.

Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport commercial manager Ms Sara Hales said the Toowoomba and the Darling Downs communities had been very supportive of Airnorth and would welcome the extra services to the region.

In addition to the new Melbourne services, Airnorth will also add new seasonal Winter direct flights between Toowoomba and Cairns and Toowoomba and Townsville.

Airnorth will operate 38 flights a week in and out of Wellcamp Airport from 9 June this year.
