Regional Airline Fly Corporate is pleased to announce the commencement of scheduled direct flights between Brisbane QLD and Orange NSW.

Commencing Monday, the 20th February 2017, flights will operate Monday through Friday mornings departing Brisbane at 7.50am QLD time and arriving in Orange at 10.50am NSW time. The return service will depart Orange at 11.25am NSW time and arrive in Brisbane at 12.20pm QLD time.

Mr Andrew Major, CEO of Fly Corporate, said he was very pleased to announce this exciting new route in Fly Corporate’s regional network. He indicated that detailed research had identified a strong need for direct flights between Brisbane and Orange.

He noted that the proposed service will not only facilitate travel to and from Brisbane, but also provide a convenient and cost effective alternative destination to Sydney for people wanting to connect to other domestic and international destinations.  The flights also provide a viable and practical regional service for the population centres such as Bathurst, Cowra, Parkes, Canowindra, Forbes, Lithgow and their surrounds along with personnel working in mining related services throughout the region.

In closing Mr Major said; “The route will greatly enhance opportunities for business between the Central West Region and Queensland. It also has potential to attract medical specialists to the region from Queensland, enhance tourism opportunities and support travel commitments for families with children at school or university in Queensland. Brisbane offers a readily accessible gateway for residents of Orange and the surrounding districts providing connections to 28 international ports and dozens of domestic destinations”.

Separately, Mr Major stated that he would like to thank the many businesses and individuals who, together with the Orange City Council, have encouraged Fly Corporate to bring these services to Orange.

Orange Mayor John Davis OAM welcomed Fly Corporate to the City and said it was a vote of confidence in the region. “The Orange Airport is an important strategic asset for the city, the region and Council. Adding another business to the airport and creating new air links is great news for the city. Orange City Council has invested significant funds at the airport in recent years with a new terminal and other upgrades. Corporate Air’s decision to open a route here supports that investment,” Cr Davis said.

A launch function for the new service is planned in the new year. Details are to be advised. Tickets are on sale now at or travel agents with $259 one-way all-inclusive Web Deal fares available.
