- Fly Corporate, an Australian regional airline, has begun flights to Wollongong (WOL) from Brisbane (BNE) and Melbourne Essendon (MEB). The airline will offer nine weekly flights on the 634-kilometre sector between the latter airport and Wollongong, while four weekly flights will be offered on the 826-kilometre link from Brisbane to the New South Wales airport. Both routes will be flown using the airline’s 34-seat Saab 340s, of which it has four. Wollongong becomes the airline’s third destination from Essendon Airport, while the airline now offers 10 destinations from its Brisbane base. It should be noted that these routes have been taken over as a result of JETGO collapsing earlier this year, with the latter having offered multi-daily flights using its 36-seat ERJ 135s according to OAG Schedules Analyser.
