Cleared to fly by safety regulators, Australia’s new low-cost airline is expected to shake-up the domestic market with a raft of leisure routes now on sale.
The airline will have bases on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and at Melbourne’s Avalon Airport, offering flights to 12 destinations on 15 routes in a phased roll-out.
“The wait is over! 2023 is the Year for Allstralia, with low cost air travel to many holiday spots, some of which are relatively undiscovered,” said Carly Pover, chief commercial officer, Bonza.
“We’re delivering on our commitment to make air travel more accessible. We promised choice and better connectivity to the regions for less and we’ve been beyond delighted with the support for our mission.”
Bonza plans to launch a travel agent portal which is the only way to book with the airline non-directly.
Pover said 93% of Bonza routes were currently not served by any airline and 96% currently not served by a low-cost airline.
Routes from Bonza’s second base at Melbourne Airport are expected to go on sale shortly.
