Jetstar to stay

JETSTAR will continue flying into the Whitsunday Coast airport at Proserpine – despite rumours to the contrary.

This is according to CEO of Tourism Whitsundays, Peter O’Reilly, who assured members yesterday that the rumours were false.

Mr O’Reilly said he spoke with Jetstar’s General Manager of Corporate and Government Relations Unni Menon yesterday morning who told him that the rumours are completely false.

However Mr O’Reilly did say that Hamilton Island was likely to lose some midweek Jetstar flights in May and June.

“As in previous years Jetstar will undertake a seasonal reduction in capacity across their entire network,” he said.

“This reduction will have no impact on Whitsunday Coast/Proserpine flights whatsoever.

“Unfortunately we will not escape unscathed as Tuesday and Wednesday services from Melbourne and Brisbane to Hamilton Island will be cut during the months of May and June.

“However, Unni has assured me that all services will resume as per the current schedule in July and I have asked him to consider the start of school holidays as an earlier point for recommencing these services,” Mr O’Reilly said.
