Ozjet Perth - Derby Launch

Tue Feb 06, 2007 1:47 pm

Hi All,

Things seem to have gone strangely quite on Ozjet I was on their website out of sheer uriosity an noticed that they are commencing a Perth-Derby service on the 27th of Feb.

I was a little surprise it hadn't been mentioned here.

Seems that it is being supported (like everything in WA) by the local mining industry.

Also given that they will have 106 seats I presume it will be all economy.

Even though there is plenty of Charter work within WA does the 737-200 limit them from doing charters to the east coast?

Simmo

Interesting. I thought Ozjets AOC had been changed to a charter only AOC, so this must only be a charter service and not a scheduled flight

Well it does so 'subject to regulatory approval' and they do say that they offer charter and RPT services.

Quoting QF772 (Thread starter):

If the base is PER then yes, severely. Interestingly though the website does state they have just finished a round of recruiting for their Perth AND Brisbane bases so who knows. This could be the start of a new Ozjet, just more sensibly this time around.

Is there such a thing as scheduled charters in Australia, like Xtra Airways or the like, here in the US?
