DJ 442 now departs DRW at 0110 arriving BNE at 0520 local.

Daily flights were cut to 5 services per week from mid January to 30/03 due to a lack of demand in the wet season.

With DJ commencing ops SYD-ASP from June 5 it is hoped that more services to DRW may follow in the second half of this year.

In an unrelated issue, Ian Thorpe was a surprise visitor to Darwin Airport this morning, i suspect he came up on QF last night and was seen boarding an Airnorth Metroliner bound for, of all places, Katherine on the direct TL 154 service, i was unable to get the rego. an unidentified source says he looked like he had just hopped out of bed.

I am sure Thorpie was glad to get to Katherine, i imagine it would have been a tight fit in the Metro!!
