Regional carrier Jetgo is adding a second route from the Wagga Wagga with flights to the Gold Coast set to take off from August 2.

Jetgo started flying between Wagga Wagga and Brisbane in February 2017 and Jetgo managing director for airlines Paul Brederick said the passenger numbers in the five months since it launched had given the airline confidence to mount a second route from Wagga Wagga.

City of Wagga Wagga Mayor Greg Conkey welcomed Jetgo’s decision to add flights to the city, adding it would encourage more visitors to the region.

The flights will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

In addition to Jetgo, QantasLink flies from Wagga Wagga to Sydney while Regional Express serves the NSW Riverina city from Melbourne and Sydney.

    Agree with Arkair, a great leap forward for regional Australia.
    Jet services will always be more popular than propeller driven aircraft and will be supported.

    Hopefully Jetgo starts a Coffs Harbour to Gold Coast route. That would really be useful

  • A link between Port Macquarie to Coffs Harbour then onto the Gold Coast and Brisbane is definately needed.

    Having dealt with this airline for two years, it is a pleasure to see it expanding in regional Australia. Next we need Sunshine Coast to points North!!
