Bonza launches base at Melbourne Tullamarine airport

There was a lot of excitement in aviation circles when the new low-cost carrier Bonza launched in January this year.

The airline saw a gap in the market to operate routes that weren’t being served by other airlines.

Today marks another milestone, as Bonza has opened a base at Melbourne’s Tullamarne airport with the launch of flights to its ‘home’ base on the Sunshine Coast.

Tullamarine will be home to a portion of the airline’s staff and crew, as well as two Boeing 737-MAX aircraft that will soon be taking customers to 11 destinations.

The launch comes as Bonza says it has reached the key milestone of selling over 100,000 seats via the Fly Bonza app – the only way to book seats directly with the airline.

That’s a very impressive figure and bodes well for the future of the airline.

“Our team of legends have been working hard to set up and launch our second base at Melbourne Tullamarine,” said Tim Jordan, CEO of Bonza.

“The Victorian capital is our second home and based here are a number of cabin crew, pilots and first officers who get to come home after a day travelling to regional destinations on our route map,” he added.

The routes from Melbourne Tullamarine include:

  • Bundaberg: Fares from $89 per person one way, 2 flights per week from 10 May 2023
