From the YSSY board - any comments anyone?

Here’s a rumour from an ‘aviation insider’.

Eureka Airlines, a low-cost Australian domestic budget, holiday airline, is planning to start up operations May 2003 with 2 X MD83's, followed by another 2 MD83's two months later. I’m told the livery is ‘not too flash’. They are planning to cover a heap of cities. Believed to be 55% Australian-owned and backed by others in South-East Asia.

That’s all I have at the moment

Sounds a lot like the legendary Spirit Airlines (now saying "starting 2003")!!

I wouldn't be racing out and buying an MD83 conversion just yet!

G'day Apacau. Noticed you're from CB. Have you heard anything re RPT flights with Brindabella. Hearing a couple of rumours that they are definately starting up?

Yes, flights to NTL are definitely starting in early Feb with twice daily Mon-Fri services.

Look out for flights to Albury around the same time.

Start with Chieftans with a desire to upgrade to 19-seat equipment as business grows.
