Direct flights Wagga Wagga to Brisbane will take off from February 13, 2017.
The new service provided by Australian regional jet aircraft provider JETGO will transport passengers between the largest regional inland city to the northern capital in less than two hours.
JETGO will initially offer three services a week from Wagga Wagga Airport to Brisbane International Airport on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
It is hoped these services will be increased to seven days a week as demand builds.
Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Greg Conkey OAM welcomed JETGO to Wagga Wagga Airport, saying the service is an extra positive boost for residents and visitors.
“A direct air service to Queensland unlocks tourism opportunities, for residents wanting to escape to the sun and surf, or for visiting family and friends, as well as improving business links for the city, which are all fantastic economic boosts for our city,” Mayor Conkey said.
“On behalf of the City of Wagga Wagga I welcome JETGO to our region and thank them for choosing our city as a new destination for their services.
“This service will add to the quality airline services enjoyed by the people of Wagga Wagga and the Riverina.
“I encourage all residents to ‘get on board’ and support this new service.”
JETGO Managing Director Airlines Paul Bredereck said the JETGO service will provide a different flying style for Wagga Wagga residents.
“Not only will passengers benefit from great time savings, they will also experience superior comfort and a fantastic in-flight service.
“These flights will see the return of jet services to Wagga Wagga Airport for the first time since 2001.
“JETGO are looking forward to providing flights into the Wagga Wagga market and welcoming many new Riverina faces on to our services.”
JETGO will fly a 37-seat Embraer ERJ-135LR Regional Jet aircraft from Wagga Wagga to Brisbane, which can reach speeds of up to 850km/h.
Direct fares will start from $197 one way and are on sale from today via the JETGO website, www.jetgo.com
