Fly Corporate and Inverell’s Air Service Working Group (IASWG) will celebrate the first anniversary of return of flights to and from Inverell.
The local community have been invited to Inverell Airport on September 13 from 8.30am.
Fly Corporate commenced the triangulation service between Inverell, Moree and Brisbane on the 13th September 2017.
IASWG worked diligently in partnership with Inverell Shire Council to secure the airline, given the wider community had been without an air service for many years.
“The Inverell service has proven successful, easily meeting our targets and exceeding expected passenger numbers,” Fly Corporate assistant sales manager Sharon Elkin said.
IASWG Chair Neil Eigeland said it was pleasing to see how the service had been adopted by the local community.
“It demonstrates the popularity of the Inverell/Brisbane route.
“IASWG is continuing to work with Fly Corporate to improve on the already successful service and looking at potential ways to expand the service in the future”.
Part of the celebrations will include the planting of two trees at the entrance to the airport.
An additional two will be planted each year to create an avenue of trees to welcome people to the facility.
Fly Corporate and Inverell Shire Council are offering the chance to win two prizes of two return tickets from Inverell to Brisbane via a Facebook competition.
Competition details can be found on the Tourism Inverell Facebook Page from September 13 at 9am.
The winners will be announced at the Sapphire City Festival Finale on October 27 in Campbell Park.
