There’s an unexpected industry taking place at Avalon Airport, one that is enjoying good growth, and is making use of the vast surrounding landscape and 1950s hangars that sit solid under the extraordinary sky.
In November last year a famous landmark on the Princes Fwy towards Geelong upped and disappeared. People were concerned, emails were written, phones were called and questions were tweeted. Where had the big blue jumbo gone?
The consternation was understandable. That old Boeing 747-338 had a history as bright and exciting as its one-time Nalanji Dreaming livery, and many people had, over its many years of flight formed nostalgic relationships with it.
If you’re looking to make 2016 your year of simple travel, Avalon Airport is very pleased to assist, with two more fabulous destinations announced by Jetstar at the end of last year.
From 27 March Jetstar will fly direct to Hobart and Adelaide from Avalon, meaning the airport’s trademark “flying made easy” can now get passengers to these two wonderful cities without any hassle.
What a fantastic year it’s been at Avalon Airport!
It began stunningly with the hosting of the Australian International Airshow, which brought beautiful planes to the sky, hundreds of thousands of visitors to the area, and injected millions into the region.
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.
