Podcast: Bonza founder reveals how he’ll disrupt the industry

written by Robyn Tongol | October 27, 2021

Proposed budget airline Bonza with its ‘thumbs up’ livery.

Earlier this month, startup airline Bonza broke cover to reveal a plan to fly “point-to-point” leisure routes not serviced by Qantas, Virgin and Rex with a fleet of two to three new 737 MAXs.

Now founder Tim Jordan tells the Australian Aviation Podcast host Adam Thorn how he plans to find a niche for his business against stiff competition.

The pair also talk about why Bonza has chosen the MAX, what he’ll do if rivals decide to compete on their routes, when it will launch and how the industry will recover from COVID.

Plus, ex-Virgin Blue executive Jordan reveals why he’s passionate about budget travel.

    Well, let’s just see how things pan out for it, shall we?

    Many airlines’ here have ‘started up’, only to fall by the wayside.

    ‘Disrupt the industry’? Yeah, right!

    Let’s just wait & see how things go for it firstly in all processes’ of a ‘start up’ airline.

    Brave words indeed, as there’s many a fall to get an airline ‘off the ground’.

    If he thinks I’m going to board a Max, he’s got another thing coming.
