Virgin Australia / Skywest Airlines ATRs to Operate at Rockhampton Airport from February
As suggested in a previous Blog post (HERE), Virgin Australia will in fact start flying Skywest Airlines operated ATR 72-500s from Rockhampton to Brisbane on weekends from February 2012.
Checking the Virgin Australia website, I can locate the following 'timetable' as such showing three flights on Saturday and two flights on Sunday - the remaining Sunday flight will most probably be operated by a B737 or E-190...
DJ1233 BNE/ROK 0700/0835
DJ1236 ROK/BNE 0905/1035
DJ1241 BNE/ROK 1140/1315
DJ1242 ROK/BNE 1345/1515
DJ1249 BNE/ROK 1740/1915 (Saturday only)
DJ1252 ROK/BNE 1945/2115 (Saturday only)
Obviously, this is why Virgin ATRs are starting to be noted at Rockhampton Airport!!
Thanks also to the various spotters who have also provided me with information regarding the Virgin ATRs!!
