In Friday’s announcement, Bonza’s Chief Commercial Officer, Carly Povey, said,
“The wait is over! 2023 is the Year for ‘Allstralia’, with low cost air travel to many holiday spots, some of which are relatively undiscovered. It’s time to see more of your own backyard for less. We’re delighted to be delivering on our commitment to make air travel more accessible. We promised choice and better connectivity to the regions for less and we’ve been beyond delighted with the support for our mission. Today we start making travel a possibility for the many, not the few. Forget connecting flights or your bum going numb in the car, Bonza is here to take Aussies from A to B without the C (cost and complexity).
“It’s important that Aussie travellers know we’re on sale, not having a sale. We’re committed to low cost fares which will in turn, stimulate new markets for Australia’s domestic tourism industry. We’re confident whenever customers choose to travel, all our fares and not just our starting fares will represent great value.”
Phase one of Bonza’s flight releases include service from Sunshine Coast to Albury, Avalon, Cairns, Coffs Harbour, Mackay, Mildura, Newcastle, Port Macquarie, Rockhampton Townsville and Whitsunday Coast. Flights are also now bookable from Cairns to Rockhampton and Mackay, between Newcastle and Whitsunday Coast, and between Rockhampton and Townsville.
