Despite Bundaberg probably not quite being in Central Queensland, we still like to report on significant movements and news from Bundaberg Airport. On Thursday 4 April, the newest Virgin Australia (Skywest Airlines) ATR 72-600 - VH-FVY- touched down from Brisbane on what was no doubt a training flight.
VH-FVY eventually departed on Friday 5 April for Canberra.
Virgin Australia will be commencing scheduled services to Bundaberg from Brisbane on Saturday 4 May. No doubt over the days leading up to the start of scheduled services there will be more Virgin Australia ATRs to visit Bundaberg. Virgin have even suggested that an ATR aircraft will feature in an open day at Bundaberg Airport!
