Bonza today touched down at the Bundaberg Airport for the first time as part of a training exercise.
The Boeing B737-8 MAX, named Bazza, landed in Bundaberg early this afternoon before travelling to the Sunshine Coast.
Its route from Bundaberg Airport was part of a larger announcement, with a total of 25 new routes to take off nationally, subject to regulatory approval.
Bonza Chief Commercial Officer Carly Povey said today’s flight into Bundaberg was an important part of training in the lead up to launching flights.
“Today our team of legends had the pleasure of flying into Bundaberg Airport before flying back to our home base at Sunshine Coast Airport,” Carly said.
“The flight is part of our internal preparation process as we prepare for wheels up, subject to regulatory approval.
“We thank Bundaberg Airport for their support.”
Carly said the airline would keep travellers up to date on the latest news.
“We will continue to update Aussie travellers, as we previously have as soon as we have more updates on all things Bonza,” she said.
“In fact, if you sign up on the Fly Bonza app – you'll be the first to know when we’re on sale!”
Bonza has announced its intention to fly direct from Bundaberg to Melbourne twice weekly.
The in-flight menus include a range of product sourced entirely from Australian producers.
Flights are due to go on sale once the airline has received regulatory approval.
