Canberra Airport has today (Friday 19 June) announced the commencement of direct flights between Canberra and Northern NSW, in partnership with the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport and regional airline Fly Pelican.
From 3 July, Fly Pelican will fly direct from Canberra Airport, with the launch price of flights starting from $229 one-way. It is an opportunity to boost ACT and the regional economy and expand domestic travel to sought after destinations including Ballina, Byron Bay and Tweed Heads.
This comes after ongoing negotiations to re-establish links between Canberra and other closed states including South Australia and Queensland. The Canberra to Ballina link is a positive step in reopening other travel gateways across Australia and across the Tasman Sea.
