Dubbo Regional Council has welcomed the introduction of flights between Dubbo and Canberra which took off yesterday, 1st February 2017.
Dubbo Regional Council Administrator Michael Kneipp said the addition of FlyPelican flights between Dubbo and Canberra is a sign of the strength of the Dubbo regional economy.
“The Dubbo Regional Council community including business and private travellers continues to support the growth of air services to and from Dubbo,” Mr Kneipp said.
“Dubbo now has five commercial operators flying direct to seven destinations,” he said.
“Travellers from Canberra can now more readily look for business opportunities with Dubbo thriving in building, construction and agricultural services.”
“Visitors from Canberra can also experience some of the region’s great attractions such as the Taronga Western Plains Zoo, Old Dubbo Gaol and the Wellington Caves or attend one of the many great events like the Dubbo Stampede running festival or the upcoming Red Hot Summer Tour,” Mr Kneipp said.
