The flight time is just under 50 minutes and we will be operating weekday services and a Sunday service providing an essential link between these city pairs.
Discussions with Coffs Harbour Council and Newcastle Airport have been very positive and we are thrilled to be expanding our network and increasing capacity into both of these growing airports. The key to making this a successful route will be to provide regular, reliable services with attractive fares that are within the budget of the leisure and business markets.”
