AIRNORTH UPGRADES TO JET FOR GROOTE EYLANDT AIR SERVICES
Airnorth is excited to announce that their E170 jet fleet will now operate air services between Darwin and Groote Eylandt. The new and enhanced jet service was well received on its inaugural flight into Groote Eylandt on Monday, January 20 and will continue to operate scheduled departures out of Darwin every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday providing a same day return.
By upgrading to the 76-seat jet aircraft, Airnorth has added an extra 30% in capacity increasing the number of seats to a total of 930 across 22 flights each week between Darwin and Groote Eylandt. The benefits of the jet enable Airnorth to provide more reliability, faster flight times, greater access to promotional airfares and the opportunity for customers to enjoy additional checked-in and carry-on baggage allowances.
Airnorth CEO Daniel Bowden said “we are excited to now be able to offer jet services to one of our more remote communities. Our customers have been asking for this for some time and we think they’ll enjoy the option of flying on the jet as the benefits of our service along with the shorter travel time and greater baggage allowance is second to none.
We are proud to operate to Groote Eylandt daily and with the jet flying three times a week, it will allow greater opportunity for connectivity to major hubs such as Darwin, Cairns and beyond.”
To celebrate Airnorth has released special sale fares on these additional jet services – available for a limited time only.
