Regional airline Fly Corporate has changed its name to Link Airways and unveiled its new branding and livery.

The airline operates from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to regional Queensland and NSW, with a fleet of Saab 340B Plus and Metro 23 aircraft.

Chief executive Andrew Major said, “Our ownership, fleet and fantastically committed team remain unchanged and we invite our customers, partners and the communities we serve to join us as we move forward under the new identity.

“We are hugely excited by this milestone in our company’s 48th year and remain committed to connecting local communities across eastern Australia.”

Link Airways’ current network includes Armidale, Biloela (Thangool), Brisbane, Coffs Harbour, Dubbo, Inverell, Melbourne (Essendon), Narrabri, Orange, Sydney, Tamworth and Wollongong (Shellharbour).

In late March, then Fly Corporate was among a consortium of eight smaller regional airlines to sign an open letter stating that they would go out of business in “days rather than weeks” unless the government offered them assistance to deal with the coronavirus crisis.

Days later, the government announced a $298 million bailout for regional aviation that included $198 million for regional airline routes to 138 communities and a further $100 million for related companies that support the industry.
