Virgin services are back at Coffs Harbour Airport

Virgin Australia returns flight services between Sydney-Coffs Harbour, along with the addition of a seasonal Melbourne-Coffs Harbour service.

 

COFFS Harbour Airport welcomed the announcement that Virgin Australia will resume its service to Sydney and launch a new seasonal service to Melbourne, coinciding with summer holidays and easing restrictions.

The seasonal service from Melbourne to Coffs Harbour will run from 18 November to 25 April and operate up to seven services a week, expected to provide more than 2,400 seats a week between the two destinations.

The Sydney to Coffs Harbour service recommences on 11 November and will run at least daily, with up to 14 flights a week, injecting almost 5,000 seats each week between the two destinations.

Both services will be operated by a 176 seat Boeing 737 jet.

Frank Mondello, General Manager for Coffs Harbour Airport, told News Of The Area, “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Virgin back to Coffs Harbour Airport.

“The return of the services to Sydney, up to fourteen per week, and Melbourne up to seven per week across the season are a strong indication of the confidence of the airlines in the Coffs region.

“The services bring over 300,000 seats of additional annual capacity and mean more choice in terms of times, fares and carriers.

“The greater connectivity will no doubt be popular for the visitors from the southern capitals.

“These travellers are high value tourists that tend to stay longer and spend more.

“This will be a timely boost to our tourism businesses which, like the aviation industry, have been doing it tough recently.

“We know what a fabulous destination the Coffs Coast region is, but these services are also great news for the people of the region wanting to reconnect with the people and places that are important to them.

“It is important that we support these services if they are to endure, so I urge everyone to take that long overdue holiday or visit the friends and family in the south you haven’t seen in a while.”
