Bingara’s access to Brisbane will be improved in September when Fly Corporate begins a daily air service from Inverell to Brisbane.
Member for Northern Tablelands, Adam Marshall last week joined representatives from Fly Corporate and Inverell Shire Council to announce the Monday to Friday return service.
“Whether you’re in business, a tourist operator or needing access to interstate or international flights everyone will benefit from this air service,” Mr Marshall said.
“Inverell has worked hard to attract an air carrier, since the collapse of Brindabella almost four years ago, which meant many regular travellers needed to drive to Armidale or Moree to fly commercially.”
Mr Marshall said the 19-seat Metro 23 turbo-prop aircraft would depart Brisbane each morning, touching down in Inverell first and then on to Moree.
“This regularity will be greatly appreciated – with the triangulation of the route ensuring it’s financially sustainable well into the future,” he said.
Fly Corporate already has services between Brisbane and Moree, Armidale, Tamworth, and Narrabri.
Meanwhile, Fly Corporate will start a direct Narrabri to Sydney air service in September.
The 19 seat Metro 23 aircraft will fly Brisbane-Narrabri-Sydney and return Sydney-Narrabri-Brisbane.
Brisbane-based Fly corporate, owned by Corporate Air, formed in 1972, is one of the largest and longest established air charter and aviation service providers based in eastern and southern Australia.
