Bonza rolls out business and group bookings

written by Jake Nelson | October 18, 2023

Bonza has officially launched its business travel and group bookings arm.

The low-cost carrier says it is offering a bespoke booking service to groups of 10 passengers or more, providing quotes including 23kg checked baggage, 8kg hand luggage and ‘pick seats’.

Planners will need to pay 25 per cent deposits within seven days, with final names and payment due 30 days before departure, though names can be changed at no extra cost up to two days before.

“We’re thrilled to bolster and formalise our group booking capabilities at Bonza. We have already seen healthy demand for group bookings as more people are choosing to travel to regional locations for business events,” said Tim Jordan, CEO of Bonza.


“There’s also a very healthy appetite to travel Bonza for sporting events and in fact, one of our first-ever bookings when we first went on sale in January was for 550 netball players travelling to Townsville for a tournament and we’re humbled to see them return again for next year’s event.”

According to Jordan, Bonza is seeing strong demand from businesses looking to take Christmas trips with their staff, with popular destinations including Cairns, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast.

“We are hearing from a number of organisations who are choosing to celebrate the end of the year with a trip across our network for the same price as a traditional restaurant booking or catered event,” he said.

The news comes a few weeks after Bonza launched branded holiday packages, which can be booked through its FlyBonza app. The first phase includes flights, accommodation, and optional travel insurance, with the second phase to cover offerings such as car hire and tours.
