Farewell Aeropelican

The integration of merged Brindabella Airlines and Aeropelican takes its final step on June 24 when the 42 year-old Aeropelican name is removed from aircraft and marketing collateral.

The fleet will be rebranded as Brindabella Airlines and marketed under the FQ flight designator. The association with Qantas will be maintained. The move completes the merging of the airlines, with the new entity being based in Canberra.

Brindabella will soon base its J41s in Sydney to operate three daily return flights to Orange and Moree.
