JetGo Embraer E-145 VH-JGR at Rockhampton Airport This Week as Second E-145 N14923 (to be VH-JGK) is due

Over the course of this week, JetGo Australia Embraer ERJ-145LR regional jet VH-JGR has been noted calling into Rockhampton Airport each day while operating scheduled services between Townsville and the Gold Coast via Rocky.

VH-JGR also operated a closed charter flight into Rockhampton Airport on Saturday 7 April, arriving from and later departing back to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, on Friday 13 April, JetGo will reportedly take delivery of their second Embraer ERJ-145LR regional jet into Brisbane from overseas.  As these photos show, it is currently at Francisco Bangoy International Airport (Davao International Airport) in the Philippines and is currently registered N14923 (cn 145318).

The aircraft will reportedly then take up the Australian registration marking of VH-JGK.

Finally, last week, Jetgo also released a timetable (shown below) and starting taking bookings on their new direct flights between Brisbane and Karratha which will kick off from Monday 25 June (subject to final regulatory approval).  The twice weekly service will utilise a two-class 98-seat Embraer E-190 jet.

Brisbane to Karratha flights will initially operate on Mondays and Thursdays changing to Mondays and Wednesdays from September.  The return Karratha to Brisbane flights will initially operate on Tuesdays and Fridays changing to Wednesdays and Fridays from September.

The new services are being established with support from the City of Karratha.

From late September Jetgo is planning to add flights between Karratha and Singapore, however considerably more work is needed before these flights can commence.
