Brisbane flights from Narrabri and Moree set to take off this Monday, August 29
Regional airline Fly Corporate will commence return flights from Moree and Narrabri to Brisbane this coming Monday, August 29 – and sales manager Geoff Woodham will on board the “maiden” flight.
“I will be on board the Inaugural flight From Narrabri to Moree and then our final destination will be Brisbane,” Mr Woodham said.
Fly Corporate, a chief sponsor of the Rowena Oktoberfest on September 9, will operate return Moree-Brisbane flights Monday to Friday, with all information and schedules available at www.flycorporate.com.au. Moree and districts residents are also urged to keep track of things by following – and Liking – Fly Corporate’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CorporateAir/?fref=ts
Fly Corporate CEO Andrew Major said the increase in the carrier’s network “is an extremely exciting development which forms part of Fly Corporate’s ongoing commitment to enhance accessibility to and from Australia’s regional communities”.
“This new service also further reinforces Fly Corporate’s recognition of stronger ties between northern NSW cities and towns and Brisbane.
“We strongly believe that whether it be for business, education, medical, government or leisure, Brisbane is very much the destination of choice for many travellers from Moree and Narrabri. Replacing a six-hour drive with an approximately 75-minute flight can only help to strengthen these ties” Mr Major said.
Fly Corporate also believes that Moree and Narrabri travellers will find Brisbane Airport a superior choice for international travel connections, with its lack of congestion and free transfers between domestic and international terminals.
“Brisbane Airport also offers passengers the ability to easily connect to other domestic destinations particularly in Queensland and Northern Australia,” Mr Major said.
Mr Major said Fly Corporate also welcomes passengers from the wider catchment area, such as Wee Waa, Gurley, Boggabri, Inverell, Warialda, Gravesend, Pallamallawa, Mungindi, Garah as well as more distant locations such as, Collarenebri, Rowena, Mallawa, Walgett and Lightning Ridge.
“We believe that residents from these areas will also benefit from the new service,” Mr Major said.
Narrabri Shire’s general manager Stewart Todd said that “after a significant airside upgrade it will be fantastic to once again see regular passenger transport (RPT) recommence from Narrabri Airport”. “It is great to see the results of council’s concerted efforts on behalf of the community now eventuating in the return of an RPT service to Narrabri Shire,” Mr Todd said.
“Flights connecting the Narrabri region to Brisbane, a major east coast capital city, will open up many opportunities for the community – professional, social, educational and also medical.
Having such great and convenient access to Brisbane is a fantastic feather in Narrabri Shire’s cap and will open doors to many opportunities.”
