Karratha-Brisbane flight schedules released

04 Apr 2018

JETGO Australia will provide direct flights between Karratha and Brisbane from the 25th June subject to final regulatory approval.

The Karratha to Brisbane service will operate on Tuesdays and Fridays from the 25th June until 21st September, and then Wednesdays and Fridays from the 24th September.

The Brisbane to Karratha service will operate on Mondays and Thursdays from the 25th June until 21st September, and then Mondays and Wednesdays from the 24th September.

Tickets will be available online from from Thursday 5th April.

JETGO Australia’s Managing Director Airlines Paul Bredereck said the company was very excited to offer the new services, marking two major milestones for the company. 

“JETGO currently operates the smaller Embraer ERJ135, ERJ140 and ERJ145 jets with 37, 44 and 50 seats. This service will see Jetgo introduce the larger 98 seat Embraer E190 to its fleet along with Business Class,” Mr Bredereck said.

“The larger E190, whilst new to JETGO Australia’s fleet, has previously been operated in Australia by Virgin Australia and Cobham, and is very popular in the region.”

The new services are being established with support from the City of Karratha.

City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long said expanding services from Karratha Airport had been a top priority for Council.

“We consistently receive feedback from the community that they want more flight options from Karratha and we have been working hard to attract additional services,” Cr Long said.

“We are delighted at the introduction of Brisbane flights, opening up new opportunities for inbound travel to the City of Karratha and direct access to the East Coast and international connections from Brisbane Airport,” Cr Long said.  

“JETGO Australia is planning to introduce flights between Karratha and Singapore from late September, however considerably more work is required before these flights can commence,” he added.


Tickets will be available online from from Thursday 5th April.
