  • FlyPelican, the Australian regional airline, started its fourth route from Newcastle (NTL) on 18 July, with a six times weekly service to Dubbo (DBO). The 19-seat J32-operated flights join the airline’s existing services from the airport to Sydney, Canberra and Ballina. There is no competition on the 312-kilometre sector, which interestingly operates twice-daily on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, offering passengers a day return on those days.
