More Airnorth flights to Townsville

Airnorth are pleased to announce they are adding more services to their Townsville schedule. From 01 June 2014, Airnorth will be operating five weekly flights from Darwin to Townsville on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and a new service every Sunday.

“We are overwhelmed by the level of support we have received for this route,” said Mr Michael Bridge, Airnorth’s Chief Executive Officer.

“This support has allowed us to more than double our flights from Darwin to Townsville since we commenced services just over two years ago. We’ve made it easier and significantly quicker for our passengers to do business, visit family and friends or holiday in North Queensland. We’ve also made it easier for our passengers to connect on other carriers through to Mackay, Rockhampton and Gladstone,” he said.

“Additionally, we’ve received great support from Darwin Airport that has resulted in more Townsville residents utilising our flights to stop over in Darwin on their way to South East Asia,” said Mr Bridge.

NT Airports Director of Commercial and Aviation Development, Mr Jim Parashos, welcomed the increase on the popular route.

“To grow a service from two weekly flights to five in just over two years is proof that Airnorth’s innovative approach to seeking new markets is a winning one,” he said. “We’re thrilled that Airnorth is committed to growing their services in the Townsville region and improving the connectivity between the two cities.”
