Regional carrier Jetgo is expanding its regular public transport (RPT) network with new flights between Townsville, Rockhampton and the Gold Coast due to take off from September.
The flights will run three times a week on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays and operate on a triangular Townsville-Rockhampton-Gold Coast routing, Jetgo said on its Facebook page on Thursday.
Townsville is a Jetgo base for its charter and fly-in/fly-out operations.
Jetgo managing director for airlines Paul Brederick says the 36-seat Embraer E135 the airline will use is the perfect sized aircraft for the route.
Currently, QantasLink flies between Townsville and Rockhampton. There is no nonstop RPT service on the Gold Coast-Rockhampton route.
The first flights were scheduled for September 28.
Jetgo’s other two RPT routes were Brisbane-Tamworth and Brisbane-Dubbo.
