Airline tickets to and from Moruya during January and February will include some of the cheapest available for many years.
While Australia navigates a new path to balance pandemic restrictions against reopening, Regional Express’ flight schedules for Moruya have returned to near pre-COVID levels.
Eurobodalla Council’s manager of commercial services Andrew Greenway said Moruya-Sydney flights as low as $99 one-way were designed to encourage people back into the air.
“With REX now flying on from Sydney to both Melbourne and Brisbane, locals can look even further afield,” Mr Greenway said.
“For example, Moruya to Melbourne in just four hours for as little as $168 one way, with your baggage automatically transferred. These deals open up Victoria and Queensland to a new group of travellers.
“The more passengers use the service, the more likely is Regional Express to offer more flights and better fares.”
Eurobodalla Council’s tourism manager Tim Booth welcomed opportunities for increased air access to the shire.
“Using Localis data, we know Melbourne-Moruya was Australia’s most searched for un-serviced flight in 2021,” Mr Booth said.
“Demand for flights is returning and increasing; it would be great to see the Melbourne-Moruya service reinstated.”
