No new flights confirmed
JETSTAR has not yet made a decision on whether or not it will re-introduce a direct flight between Sydney and Proserpine.
This is despite the mayor of the Whitsunday Regional Council, Mike Brunker, confirming last week that Council would waive landing fees to the airline for that flight.
Jetstar's general manager of Corporate Relations, Simon Westaway, said this week that the airline was in consultation with several parties including Council regarding any further expansion into Whitsunday Coast Airport.
"We are always looking at ways to build capacity into all the airports we serve," he said.
Mr Westaway said there was always competing needs for aircraft and Whitsunday Coast was only one of the ten airports served by Jetstar.
However, he said the company would never rule out re-entry into any market and was also considering ways to build capacity of the Sydney-Brisbane route.
