Commenting on the new flights between Brisbane and Melbourne Avalon was Jetstar Group CEO Stephanie Tully:

“The launch of flights between Melbourne (Avalon) and Brisbane marks the first time in our history we’ve operated 100 domestic routes, which has been made possible by the introduction of our new state-of-the-art NEO aircraft into our fleet.”

“Creating a direct link between Avalon and Brisbane will provide even more options for Victorians wanting to travel to Queensland at an affordable price, as well as boost tourism to the beautiful Surf Coast region and surrounds.”

 “It’s been 20 years since we first took to the skies, allowing more Australians to travel for less and with every opportunity we’re excited to be expanding  our network further.”

 “Demand for our everyday low fares is stronger than ever, as we continue to invest in new aircraft, new uniforms and new routes like this one.” 

 “We thank the Victorian Government and Melbourne (Avalon) Airport for their continued support.”

In conclusion, this new addition of flights between Brisbane and Melbourne Avalon means more to Jetstar.

Servicing 100 domestic routes highlights the demand that there is for such travel around Australia.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how the new flights perform, as well as whether there is scope to expand this further.

But for now, let’s see how the Australian carrier performs from here.
