Australians relied on fixed-wing charter flights more than ever during the COVID pandemic, with demand increasing over 35 per cent since June 2019.
In the 12 months to 30 June 2021, over 1.73 million passengers flew between the NSW and Victorian capitals, keeping it as Australia’s busiest route, despite passenger figures falling 73.8 per cent from the previous year.
