Up, up and away – new service soars into Wellcamp
31 March 2015
First there was QantasLink, then Regional Air Express, now Australia’s newest airport has a regular weekly closed charter service that official starts today.
The service run by one of Australia’s leading charter aircraft and logistics company’s - Avmin Aviation - will include three daily services in and out of Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport.
The weekly service will mean locally-based Fly In Fly Out workers in the region no longer have to drive to their contract work in the Surat Basin.
Avmin Aviation’s managing director Mr Paul O’Brien said up until the opening of Wellcamp, charter flights such as the one starting today would not have been possible to operate out of Toowoomba.
“These small aircraft like the 18-seater Metroliner aircraft are runway hungry and the Toowoomba Airport was simply not long enough to accommodate the landing of these aircraft,” explained Mr O’Brien.
Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport general manager Mr Phil Gregory said the new regular charter service was just the start of more flights into the airport.
“Our current RPT flights are going extremely well and it is very likely we will operate more flights in the next few months to meet the growing demand of customers in the region,” said Mr Gregory.
He said customer feedback suggested the airport had become more than just an airport but rather a destination with the recent launch of the Altitude Café, which offered lunch, dinner and refreshments.
Avmin’s three daily routes will include:
