Jetstar has today announced a boost to WA flying, with the first ever direct service connecting Sydney to one of the west’s top tourist regions – Busselton Margaret River, ahead of the next Easter holidays.
The three-per-week service will carry more than 50,000 customers between Sydney and the world-renowned wine and surf region each year, making a west coast visit easier than ever for domestic and international tourists.
Operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft, the first flight will take off on 26 March 2024, just days before Easter and the second anniversary of Jetstar’s inaugural flight from Melbourne to Busselton Margaret River in April 2022.
Jetstar Group CEO, Stephanie Tully, said Jetstar will be the only commercial airline offering direct flights between the east coast and Busselton Margaret River.
“Holidaymakers from Sydney will be able to fly direct to Margaret River in about five hours for as low as $109 one way, making the region far more accessible for domestic and international tourists from the harbour city.
“Our flights from Melbourne have already been incredibly popular, and once our Sydney flights launch, we’ll be carrying well over 100 thousand customers to and from this captivating region annually.
“We thank the Western Australian Government, the South West Development Commission, Western Australia Tourism and the City of Busselton for their ongoing support of our efforts to grow travel demand to the region.”
