Jetstar Airways Airbus A320 VH-VFQ at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport as RPT Services Resume into the Whitsundays from Sydney - UPDATED!

UPDATE!  Sadly, the continuing global pandemic and strict border closures has seen the end of services from Sydney to Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport from Thursday 13 August.

On Saturday 4 July, it was noted that Jetstar Airways resumed interstate Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) scheduled flights into the Whitsundays with Airbus A320 VH-VFQ touching down at the Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport as JST840 from Sydney.  It later returned to the New South Wales capital as JST841.

As reported below, Jetstar had re-started flights into Prosie from and back to Brisbane in mid-June. 

While Alliance Airlines started RPT flights also from and back to Brisbane about a week later and Virgin Australia re-started RPT flights from and back to Brisbane on Thursday 2 July.

Flights into the Whitsundays hadn't operated since late March at the height of the recent COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Current schedules show no fixed pattern of operations at this stage, although I do note that another flight into the Whitsundays will touch down at Prosie from Sydney on Monday 6 July.

Meanwhile, flights to Hamilton Island remain in limbo with the Island still not open and no published plans available to indicate a possible re-opening.

Great to see the Whitsundays 'open for business!'
