Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport General Manager Phil Gregory is excited by the 14th March launch of the new services and stated, “Toowoomba and surrounding regions has a catchment area of almost 400,000 people and by the time residents drive two hours to Brisbane Airport, park and then fly, a direct service from Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport would already have them at their destination in either Melbourne or Cairns.
Time is money for many travellers and we are very encouraged with the level of enquiries we are receiving for these direct jet service and expect early ticket sales, for introductory sale travel periods, to sell quickly.”
