Start Date Announced For Flights Between Narrabri, Moree And Brisbane

29 July 2016

Regional airline, Fly Corporate today announced the start date for an airline service between Narrabri, Moree and Brisbane. Scheduled for lift off on Monday 29th of August, the new service will operate Monday to Friday mornings, placing Narrabri and Moree within easy reach of Brisbane.

Making the announcement Mr Andrew Major, CEO of Fly Corporate said, this increase in the Fly Corporate network is an extremely exciting development which forms part of Fly Corporate’s ongoing commitment to enhance accessibility to and from Australia’s regional communities. This new service also further reinforces Fly Corporate’s recognition of stronger ties between northern NSW cities and towns and Brisbane. “We strongly believe that whether it be for business, education, medical, government or leisure, Brisbane is very much the destination of choice for many travellers from Moree and Narrabri. Replacing a six-hour drive with an approximately 75-minute flight can only help to strengthen these ties” Mr Major said.

Moree and Narrabri travellers will also find Brisbane Airport a superior choice for international travel connections with its lack of congestion and free transfers between domestic and international terminals. Brisbane Airport also offers passengers the ability to easily connect to other domestic destinations particularly in Queensland and Northern Australia.

We also look forward to welcoming passengers from the wider catchment area such as Wee Waa, Boggabri, Inverell together with more distant locations such as Walgett and Lightning Ridge, who we believe will benefit from this service. The new services will also facilitate access to the Moree and Narrabri districts for visitors and tourists.

In welcoming the commencement of the new service Narrabri Shire’s General Manager Mr Stewart Todd said that “after a significant airside upgrade it will be fantastic to once again see regular passenger transport (RPT) recommence from Narrabri Airport. “It is great to see the results of Council’s concerted efforts on behalf of the Community now eventuating in the return of an RPT service to Narrabri Shire. Flights connecting the Narrabri region to Brisbane, a major east coast capital city, will open up many opportunities for the Community; professional, social, educational and also medical. Having such great and convenient access to Brisbane is a fantastic feather in Narrabri Shire’s cap and will open doors to many opportunities added Mr Todd. Narrabri Shire looks forward to continuing to work with Fly Corporate and eagerly awaits the commencement of their Narrabri – Brisbane RPT service”.

Acting Moree Plains Shire Mayor, Cr Sue Price, congratulated Fly Corporate and reinforced Council’s strong support for the proposal.  “We can see a significant range of economic benefits flowing from the proposed service which means that Moree and the surrounding district is now connected to two state capitals” she said. “The service reinforces Moree’s key role as a transport hub for the North West region”. “Council is delighted that an air service to Brisbane will once again be available”, said Director of Planning and Community Development, Mr Angus Witherby, who congratulated Fly Corporate on the initiative.   The proposal from Fly Corporate was very solid and the parent company Corporate Air’s 44-year background in the industry augers well for the provision of quality services into the future”.  Council will be actively working with Fly Corporate to publicise the new service and assist them with a smooth start-up in Moree.  Councillors, when approving the proposed service, highlighted the benefits of air links to Brisbane for accessing medical services and also for business.  Many Queensland based companies operate in the Shire, and will gain significant benefit from a regular air service.
