Mr Andrew Major, CEO of Fly Corporate, said he was very pleased to announce this exciting new addition to Fly Corporate’s regional network.  He noted that the service will not only facilitate direct travel to and from Brisbane and Melbourne, but also provide a convenient and cost-effective alternative to Sydney for people wanting to connect to other domestic and international destinations. The flights also provide a viable and practical regional service for the population centres surrounding Dubbo along with personnel working in mining and agriculture related services throughout the region.

With respect to Melbourne, Mr Major went on to say that “we have chosen to operate this service utilising Melbourne’s Essendon Airport given its close proximity to the Melbourne CBD, lack of airport congestion and economical car parking options. For passengers inbound to Melbourne wanting to connect on to other domestic and international destinations, there is a free shuttle bus connecting Essendon and Tullamarine airports”.

Mr Major stated that he would like to thank Mayor Ben Shields and his team at Dubbo Regional Council together with the many businesses and individuals who have encouraged Fly Corporate to re-establish these services. Fly Corporate looks forward to providing ongoing reliable, comfortable and economical air services for the Dubbo community and surrounding districts.

Mayor of Dubbo Region Councillor Ben Shields today welcomed the announcement that Fly Corporate will be operating out of Dubbo. “I am thrilled to extend a very warm welcome to Fly Corporate to Dubbo Regional Airport on behalf of the community. Securing the Brisbane and Melbourne routes will be of significant benefit to residents and businesses of the Dubbo Region. I encourage everyone to utilise this service for either business or pleasure to ensure the routes are sustainable”.
