Flights to resume from Albion Park Airport


About six months after the collapse of JetGo, the replacement air provider will finally commence flying out of Albion Park Airport on Monday.

Fly Corporate will reintroduce the flights to and from Melbourne and Brisbane from this Monday, meaning local residents once again will have an option, other than Sydney.

Business Development Officer Jeff Boyd says a lot of work has gone into getting things ready.

"Everyone's very receptive of us, particularly the businesses that see it as a great tool for them to use on a daily basis to get to Brisbane or Melbourne, rather than having to trek up to Sydney and battle the traffic and battle the cues", Mr Boyd said.

Fly Corporate will operate the Saab 340b plus aircraft.

"They're a 34 seat turboprop aircraft, same aircraft that Regional Express operate throughout Australia, they're probably the most popular mid-sized turboprop aircraft that operate commuter services throughout the world", he said.
