Introducing Link Airways

Fly Corporate has been servicing regional Australia for 48 years and they’ve decided it’s time for a makeover.

Starting this month, the airline will rebrand as Link Airways.

CEO, Andrew Major said “Our ownership, fleet and fantastically committed team remain unchanged and we invite our customers, partners and the communities we serve to join us as we move forward under the new identity. Whatever their reason for flying, we want our passengers to feel valued and as such, providing a great customer experience and essential connectivity to communities is at the core of what we do.”

The airline remains committed to connecting local communities across eastern Australia and flights can be booked in the same way as you have done previously. Over time there will be a gradual name change from Fly Corporate to Link Airways.

Essential travel schedule continues

Under the Federal Government’s Regional Airline Network Support (RANS) program Link Airways continues to provide a minimum weekly schedule to all communities it serviced prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Andrew Major said “We are pleased that regional Australia can retain these vital flights. This program provides critical connectivity for essential travellers/freight and we look forward to further increasing the frequency of flights in due course.”

The increase of services will be determined by the the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated State border restrictions. Like other airlines, Link Airways has introduced extensive protocols to help protect their customers, the communities that they service and their staff. All passengers will undergo temperature testing at check-in and face masks are being supplied free of charge for the compulsory wearing of masks.
