New Direct Flights between Bundaberg and Brisbane from 14 November 2022

10 August 2022

Established Australian airline Link Airways will commence scheduled direct flights between Bundaberg and Brisbane in November 2022 utilising the airline’s 34 passenger Saab 340B Plus aircraft.

The Saab 340B Plus aircraft has full inflight cabin service and the standard inflight offering includes hot and cold beverages and premium snacks with complimentary beer/wine available on all afternoon and evening services.

With a flight time of just over 50 minutes this new service will provide passengers from Bundaberg and Brisbane the opportunity to spend a full business day at their destination and return home that same afternoon whilst also facilitating potential for weekend stays.

CEO of Link Airways, Mr Andrew Major, said that “the airline is very proud to be able to offer these new services between Bundaberg and Brisbane. We see strong demand for additional direct flights and the proposed service will facilitate further leisure and business links between the two regions”. He said that studies conducted over a number of years had revealed a significant demand for flights between Bundaberg and Brisbane that provided business-friendly day return schedules and increased capacity on the route. In addition to thanking the organisations and people who approached Link Airways about the launch of these extra services, Mr Major acknowledged the cooperation of the Bundaberg Regional Council.

Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey welcomed the announcement. “Council has been working hard to promote the airport and it’s great to see this result in increased interest from new airlines”. Mayor Dempsey said. “It’s fantastic to see Link Airways choose the Bundaberg Region as a new destination on its flight route and highlights the profile we have nation-wide as a desirable destination. This is certainly welcome news for locals and visitors alike and will help to address the growing demand we are seeing post-Covid. We have previously had two airlines operating this route from Bundaberg Regional Airport and that was very successful, so it is great to see another airline recognising the region’s potential”.
