Last week I did something crazy – I quit my job so I can go…
Dust off your straw hats and get out your swimmers, it’s time to fly to the coast—the tropical coast!—direct from Canberra.
Today’s announcement by Canberra Airport that Canberrans will soon be able to fly direct to the Sunshine Coast and Cairns has us rejoicing.
Regional airline Alliance Airlines is taking advantage of the reopening of the Queensland border, promising direct flights for Canberrans, just in time for summer.
After a tough year, with Canberran airport operations down 98%, we’re seeing our hard work at complying with COVID restrictions pay off.
Whether it’s the adventure of the Great Barrier Reef calling your name, or palm-tree lined beaches, there has never been a better or more suitable time to fly to Far North Queensland.
Alliance Airlines will run two flights a week out of Canberra to these direct destinations from 23 October 2020.
With the excitement of Queensland reopening their borders already causing over 2500 extra flight bookings, you’ll need to act with haste to secure a ticket to paradise.
Canberra Airport’s CEO, Stephen Byron remarked this was an “opportunity to experience all our region has to offer, as well as stimulating jobs and growing the air market travel,” describing it as a “win-win” for both parties.
Alliance Airlines launch fares between Canberra and the Sunshine Coast are available for sale now until 2 October and start at just $129 one-way with regular fares commencing at $169 one-way.
If you want to go the extra mile(s), launch fares between Canberra and Cairns are also one sale now starting at $249 one-way, with regular fares starting at $275 one-way.
