hope noone has booked flights to Albury for Winter snow
Not surprising at all. They certainly had some interesting routes.
Few handy routes too mate.
Albion Park to Brisvegas was soo good for my (ageing) mum, than Syd or Cbr options
I believe you. Unfortunately history says it’s mighty difficult to compete with the big boys.
Cbr airport authority says hi !!!!
Never heard of them. Well, I suppose flights in Vic are limited.
I would have thought their mine charter ops would have payed the bills, and kept afloat any loss making commuter routes.............obviously wrong.
The Karratha flight hadn't yet started:
"Brisbane – Karratha services commence June 25 2018 (subject to regulatory approval)."
That surprises me that its happening now. That should have happened during the economic boom. I’d be amazed if there was still a business case for it in this clinate
There are a lot of mines out of Karratha and plenty of Qldérs and Kiwi's work there. This route would be quite busy I would think.
Jet Go do charters out of Brisbane to other Qld mine sites, this long haul stuff is relatively new.
Brisbane to Karratha needs a bit bigger plane than the Brazilians.
They didn't have enough airframes to service their routes.
It's a real pity for Wollongong
Their flights were high patronage
Their press release just one week ago:
JETGO Australia services between Brisbane and Karratha will now commence Monday 6th August, subject to final regulatory approval.
This is due to delays with the delivery of the aircraft which is now scheduled for arrival in Brisbane in July.
Once delivered the aircraft will be inducted into JETGO Australia’s fleet and approvals processed by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
JETGO Australia’s Managing Director Airlines, Paul Bredereck said “We have been going through the process of commissioning a new aircraft into our fleet for the introduction of this service, which has required considerable preparation.”
“Unfortunately, due to delays with the delivery of the new aircraft into Australia, we have had to defer the commencement of our Brisbane to Karratha service to allow for final approvals to be processed.”
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to those customers already booked on flights and will work closely with them to ensure they are fully refunded or rescheduled for a later date and will provide a $100 voucher to be used towards future bookings.”
The new service is being established with the support of the City of Karratha.
City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long said the City looked forward to the commencement of the Brisbane to Karratha service.
“We are supporting JETGO in its final phase of commissioning and approvals and look forward to the commencement of the Karratha to Brisbane service in August,” Cr Long said.
We are also progressing with mandatory modifications and approvals required for international status at our airport terminal to enable the Singapore to Karratha service to commence later in the year, as planned.”
Brisbane to Karratha flights will operate on Mondays and Thursdays from the 6th August until 21st September, and then Mondays and Wednesdays from the 24th September.
Maybe that’s why they’ve gone down the gurgler
Any number of possibilities, but the costs of setting up a new route overtaking the expected revenue from that route is a fairly common scenario for descending into financial oblivion.
Bugger. Dubbo to Melbourne landing at Essendon was a winner. Mrs did it two weekends ago - just in time.
Unlikely, Charters are cash in the bank. The contracts are usually X number of flights/week or month for a fixed price. No minimum passenger numbers, maximum passengers are determined by aircraft capacity.
So who runs this charter? The mining companies won’t unless there’s a boom on
Remote locations ie. Telfer, Mr.Keith etc. Need the services of Charters Co.s to operate as a FIFO mine. It's these type of destinations that make Charter ops profitable.
I'd suggest it's their foray into RPT that got them in to trouble
True, but Karratha is hardly a remote location. Its actually an international airport to Bali as well
Their problem is dubbo council wound them up for a oddly negotiated landing fee structure
Quite sad, was an awesome connection to a lot of cities. Out of MEB was great too. The other problem they had was they weren’t in the main GDS booking system. Because of this if you searched on Webjet for Melbourne-Dubbo they didn’t come up as an option.
