ACCC should be able to stop another operator scheduling within X hours of the first on the same route for 18 months.

Key word in that sentence is SHOULD.

Have you not noticed that QF and VA schedules often follow from the two airline policy days? Arriving minutes apart.

The ACCC wil do nothing at all.

The market tells them where to put their flights or so Network keeps saying in every Airline I have been in.

Kerry Packer once said that "you only get one Alan Bond in your lifetime". I think there could be a few out there:

Unfortunately that is all that is in the public domain. I would love to see the agreement.

PPP-Adelaide is about the biggest market not served. Unless they are thinking about one weekly PPP to Ballarat or something.

True but you get a couple of airports to stump up $1M in route development and the financials look great when they start. Then an IPO to let the public in on the 'amazing business'. The airport agreements come to an end and the routes have to stand up without support. Not viable so the whole lot goes down.
I honestly hope they make money but they will have airport (read ratepayer) money underpinning some pretty dumb airport pairs. That is not long term sustainable.

Serious question…

What makes Bonza think that it can make a route like this work given JQ already operate MEL / SYD / BNE to PPP. If a route like ADL PPP was even remotely feasible, wouldn’t JQ have tried it already?

I think it’s more they are looking at doing such routes once or twice a week. They think it’s feasible at once or twice a week. I don’t believe that’s the case but that’s all out of the Bonza playbook.

They want to offer 50% the amount of routes Jetstar fly but with 90% less aircraft. They will do that by flying once or twice a week. That’s a pretty small market or non existent market they are chasing.

Newcastle Airport Facebook page is touting that Bonza will be flying there from the Whitsundays and the Sunshine Coast mid 2022. Haven’t seen any announcement from Bonza yet, must be imminent

SMH article has Bonza based at MCY - “90 km south of Brisbane”. Good luck finding it!
