Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-YFQ Arrives into Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport on Resumption of Flights into the Whitsundays

On Thursday 2 July, it was noted that Virgin Australia resumed Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) scheduled flights into the Whitsundays with Boeing B737-800 VH-YFQ touching down at the Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport as VOZ1117 from Brisbane.  It later returned to the capital as VOZ1118.

Virgin Australia hasn't operated into the Whitsundays 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 on Saturday 4 July.

As we reported below, Jetstar Airways 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

Finally, 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!'
