Severe Storms in Brisbane Cause Jetstar Flight from Mackay Airport to Divert to Sydney!

Certainly a surprise to see on the online flight-tracking applications that the evening Jetstar Airways service from Mackay to Brisbane - JST889 - diverted to Sydney due the large and severe storms that were passing through the Gold Coast and Brisbane late on Tuesday 9 December.

Initially, Gold Coast-bound flights diverted to Brisbane, and then with storms affecting Brisbane, at least five flights bound for Brisbane diverted to the Gold Coast.


Perhaps due to parking restrictions, the Jetstar flight from Mackay to Brisbane - operated by Airbus A320 VH-VQW - diverted to Sydney.

At the time of writing, VH-VQW is scheduled to fly from Sydney to Brisbane as JST889.
