This month Jetstar begins flying direct to the Gold Coast from Avalon Airport.
In the exciting new deal struck by Jetstar, the State Government and Linfox, Jetstar is to announce two new destinations, with many local residents bidding for the Gold Coast as their first choice.
It is a region popular for its food, beaches, resorts and exciting nightlife, whilst being the gateway to Tambourine, Kingscliff and Byron Bay, which are all a short drive from the airport, and offer a quieter aspect in the region.
Avalon Airport CEO, Justin Giddings is thrilled about the destination and the opportunity it offers the local community to travel easily to Northern NSW and Queensland.
“A lot of people living in this region have been asking for flights to the Gold Coast for a long time,” he said. “We’re so pleased to have this new destination and are excited for the growth and opportunity for the region - as well as for people who just want to get away and do it easily!”
Just as exciting are the tourism opportunities the new flights will offer Victoria, given Avalon Airport is the gateway to the Surf Coast and the Bellarine, as well as regions of interest such as Geelong and Werribee.
From the 26 October Jetstar will fly direct to and from Gold Coast and Avalon Airports daily, from Avalon at 10am each day, and from the Gold Coast at 11.30am. Tickets are on sale now.
