Are you thinking of a getaway to Cairns?  You had better get in quick, as Airnorth will soon no longer be jetting to the tropical destination, cancelling its service from Toowoomba to Cairns after mid-October.

The airline contacted customers on Friday (July 13th) advising those booked on flights after mid-October that their flights had been cancelled.

The reason for the cut in the service is due “lack of bookings.”

Wellcamp Airport general manager Sara Hales told The Chronicle that the news Airnorth was cutting the Cairns route was "disappointing".

In June, Qantas announced it had cut two of its flights between Wellcamp and Sydney, due to the international pilot shortage.
