A couple of correspondents have emailed me details of plans that Virgin Australia will be increasing the services, as well as upgrading some services to jets, between Gladstone and Brisbane.
This will be the first time a Virgin Australia jet service will land at Gladstone.
I understand that the jet services will only operate during weekdays, with weekend services to remain flown by Skywest Airlines-operated ATR 72-500 aircraft.
There also appears to be plans to introduce an additional weekday service later in mid-June.
These new services are obviously needed as several emails suggest their current ATR flights arrive and depart with pretty full looking loads.
