July 2007: Norfolk Air (NOA) will become the newest international airline to fly into Melbourne, when direct flights begin to Norfolk Island on October 19, 2007. Visitors from Victoria, Tasmania, and South Australia presently make up about 16% of all arrivals to the small island, 1600 km north-east of Sydney, and the direct connection is designed to build on that share by providing the convenience of a more direct service.
The new non-stop service will leave Melbourne International Airport at 12.50 pm every Friday, and arrive on the island at 5.50 pm local time. Return flights will leave at 8 am on Fridays and arrive in Melbourne at 11.50 am, after a brief Sydney stopover.
"We believe the convenience of a direct flight will attract more visitors," said (NOA) General Manager, Ewan Wilson. "Although the non-stop sector will be outbound initially, we plan to offer a totally non-stop service, when we replace our present 737-200 with a new airplane in 2008.
Mr Wilson said the new Melbourne service, which is to include eight "Bounty" Class (business) (C) seats, is bookable now via http://www.norfolkair.com and licensed travel agents.
"We're planning to launch a marketing campaign with Norfolk Island Tourism (NIT) to get the word out about the new service as quickly as possible," he added. (NIT) General Manager, Steve McInnes said he was delighted with the move to Melbourne flights, because of the importance of the southern markets. "Norfolk Island appeals to Victorians, South Australians and Tasmanians, because it is one of the most affordable international destinations available and holds great appeal for families and nature and heritage lovers," he added.
"The island offers a vast range of tours and activities, and its affordability means holidaymakers can stay longer, making the Friday flights ideal for those wanting to get away for a week or more."
(NOA) is a joint partnership set up by the Norfolk Island Government with airplane operator Ozjet (OZJ), using (NOA) cabin crew (CA) and basing the airplane on the island. Passports are required for travel to the island, an External Territory of Australia.
