And There Are Reports That Mackay Airport to Gold Coast Flights are "Only Months Away"

Recent reports in local media have suggested that flights between Mackay Airport and the Gold Coast may be "only months away".

But only if an airline can be secured to fly the route!

Mackay and Gold Coast airport staff, and representatives of Mackay Regional and Gold Coast City councils, have recently met to discuss the plans.  The Mackay Airport general manager said if they found an airline, the service could start later this year.

With discussions already underway, the proposed service would start at three flights a week, with the ultimate aim of going daily.
