    I am amazed that there are not direct flights from Avalon Vic to Cairns Qld , both locations cover large areas and have numerous attractions and would well suit a new proactive Airline who was prepared to support this service

    Great to see another airline having a go. Unfortunately over the years Qantas has become cocky and arrogant, Virgin hasn’t been quite enough to put a large enough scare up their “tailpipe” however, Bonza might just have the grunt to achieve it !!!

    Wollongong is the third largest city in NSW that is crying out for a service such as this. Have a runway big enough to cater for aircraft of this size with a brand new passenger terminal as well.Hope to see Bonza flying out of Shellharbour airport.

    I hope you have written to the Hervey Bay Airport. We have lots to see and do here. Fishing whale watching, Fraser Island to name some.

    I am driving from Gladstone to Rockhampton approx 1 hr 15min to fly Bonza to Cairns for 3 nights. I can have a whole weekend away with accommodation,for less than a return flight Gladstone to Brisbane. My $ going north now or other places I can discover with Bonza as flight savings cover my accommodation. Win win.
