Brindabella Airlines is making a number of changes to its schedules which it says will restore “integrity” to its operations after an ongoing period of flight disruptions and delays that culminated in its Jetstream 41 fleet being temporarily grounded and the suspension of Sydney-Orange flights.
“Brindabella Airlines has been working hard during the past fortnight to restore integrity to its scheduled regular passenger transport services,” the airline said in a statement on its website on Wednesday. “As part of an internal review, services on the airlines Sydney to Orange route have been temporarily suspended to allow equipment to be used and support performance on the airlines NSW regulated routes. In addition, Brindabella will be presenting a revised schedule of services to Councils on Thursday 5th December 2013, that is formulated to bring about immediate schedule integrity to the airlines network.”
Concluded the statement: “Transport NSW have been in regular dialogue with Brindabella, and the airline is regularly providing operational updates to the department as to its performance on its regulated routes. Regular two way communication is continuing to ensure both parties are properly updated.”
Brindabella Airlines, which merged with Aeropelican earlier this year, is based in Canberra but operates an extensive network across regional NSW out of Sydney and Brisbane. It operates a fleet of 10 aircraft comprising Jetstream 41s, Jetstream 31s and Metros.
