Video Podcast: Is Bonza’s plan now in trouble?

written by Adam Thorn | July 19, 2023

Last week, Bonza said it would axe five of its 27 routes just months after their launch in a move the airline said would reduce cancellations across its network.

Chief customer officer Carly Povey admitted to Australian Aviation the decision to cut back services had been made earlier than Bonza would have liked and added the company was compelled to take out routes where there wasn’t “sustainable demand at present”.

Does this mean the end of Bonza’s dream to fly point-to-point routes, cutting out capital cities? Or is this just a sensible restructuring of its network? Adam, Chris and Jake discuss.

Plus, the team put the boot into a bizarre union negotiation, discuss the latest chapter in the row over slot rules and ask what’s the solution to the staffing issues at air traffic control.
