A bit of news from back home, FlyPelican, NSW’s fastest growing regional carrier has launched a new Dubbo to Canberra route. Dubbo in the central west of NSW has never had the option to fly directly to the nation’s capital, however, Dubbo does have flights to Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne among many other regional destinations and until now it seems like Canberra has been the missing city. Flight FP635 operated 19-seat Jetstream 32 VH-OTE arrived into Canberra after a one hour trip just after 5:15 local time yesterday. FlyPelican has scheduled seven flights a week on the Canberra-Dubbo route, with two flights a day on Mondays and Fridays, as well as a single return service on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. It also allows travellers from the central west looking for an alternative to Sydney for international connections with Canberra offering travellers direct flights to Singapore and Aukland and personally Canberra is a lot nicer of an airport then Sydney (so a massive win).
