Alliance Airlines to begin Brisbane – Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) with F70s/F100s
Alliance Airlines, a very large user of Fokker 50s, 70s, and 100s within Australia, has announced Brisbane – Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine).
The 893-kilometre service will link Queensland’s capital with this important tourist location on a four-weekly basis from 22 June. It’ll use either 80-seat F70s or 100-seat Fokker 100s.
This will be the first flights to Whitsunday Coast Airport since 28 March, with this new route subsidised – in partnership with the Whitsunday Regional Council – to help local tourism to restart.
While it’ll have no direct competition when it starts, Jetstar will offer a six-weekly service from 27 June and daily the week after that, the carrier’s website shows. Virgin Australia, meanwhile, will offer a 10-weekly connection from 13 July.
Brisbane – Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) had almost 319,000 seats last year, carved among Jetstar and Virgin Australia. Tigerair Australia ended the route in 2018, whereupon its parent, Virgin, increased its own capacity.
