On Monday (May 8, 2023), Bonza announced the launch of their inaugural flight between Melbourne (Tullamarine) and Mildura, giving Victorians the opportunity to connect with friends and family more often, as well as holiday within the State. The route will operate three times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with one-way fares from $49 per person. Onboard the flight was a group of avid aviation photographers of ‘Planespotters’ who have all shot images of Bonza’s fleet at Melbourne Airport in recent weeks. So far the carrier has launched service from Melbourne (Tullamarine) to Rockhampton, Port Macquarie, Sunshine Coast, Tamworth and Toowoomba Wellcamp. Later this week, Bonza will launch service from the Victorian capital to Bundaberg and Gladstone, with service to Mackay commencing on May 23rd. Bonza also offers service to the Sunshine Coast from both Avalon and Mildura.

In Monday’s announcement, Bonza’s Chief Commercial Officer, Carly Povey, said,

“If you live in Melbourne or Mildura and have been putting off seeing the rellies or having a holiday at home, now is perfect timing to grab a low cost flight. Whether you’re hiring a houseboat on the Murray River and exploring Mildura’s wineries, or indulging in Melbourne’s galleries and cafes - it is now more affordable than before.”

Melbourne Airport’s Chief of Aviation, Jim Parashos, added,

“Bonza is doing things differently and Melbourne Airport is proud to be the only capital city on the airline’s launch network. The extra capacity and competition Bonza brings to this route with its Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will help more tourists, families, farm workers and businesses to connect, which is great for Melbourne, Mildura and the broader state economy.”

Welcoming the arrival of Bonza’s guests from Melbourne, Mildura Airport’s CEO, Trevor Wilcock, said,

“The Mildura community is very excited to welcome Bonza to the vital link between our region and the State Capital. Eight out of 10 travellers through our airport currently connect to Melbourne and this new link further enhances the essential ties between the two cities. It is great news for our region!”

Bonza is Australia’s new, and only independent low-cost carrier (LCC), enabling Australians to explore more of their own backyard at low prices. The airline currently operates a fleet of five brand new Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft, which will grow to eight by the end of the first year of operations. Bonza’s initial route map includes 27 routes to 17 destinations. Over 90 percent of Bonza routes are not served by any airline, and 96 percent are not served by a low-cost carrier. The lowest fares are now available for booking on the FlyBonza App.
