JETGO Australia sees benefit of Illawarra-Melbourne service for Southern Highlands residents

    JETGO Australia, via its official website, posted (09-Jan-2018) a report on its service linking Illawarra Regional Airport and Melbourne Essendon Fields Airport (Southern Highland News, 09-Jan-2018). The article noted the potential benefits of the service for Southern Highlands residents. As previously reported by CAPA, the carrier noted it was “pleased” with progress of operations at Illawarra Regional Airport, two months into operation. JETGO Australia founder Arron Mulder said: “It is what we expected, we would have liked it to be a little bit better, I think every retailer does” but it is a “building market”. The service resulted in a 17% increase in passenger traffic at the airport in Dec-2017, with 3266 JETGO passengers handled and nearly 60% using the JETGO Melbourne service.
