As a key regional airline, we strive to maintain essential regional and freight connections in Australia. However, due to the unprecedented impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be suspending over 90% of our flying until the end of May 2020.
Please refer to our updated schedule below
As part of this reduction we have made the difficult decision to suspend our Taree-Sydney / Sydney-Taree and Newcastle-Sydney / Sydney-Newcastle services effective Monday 30th March.
Any passengers booked on services after this date will be provided a travel credit for the full value of their ticket, free of charge, for use anywhere on our network for 12 months from the original ticket issue date. At the time of rebooking, one change will be permitted and fees for any differences in fares and/or applicable taxes may apply.
FlyPelican will remain available for you, our travel agent friends.
