From February 20, Orange residents and workers will be able to catch a plane directly to Brisbane with regional carrier Fly Corporate.
The service will start with flights from Monday to Friday, leaving Orange at 11.25am (AEDT) arriving in Brisbane at 12.20pm (AEST).
Fly Corporate’s CEO Andrew Major said the company had identified a strong need for flights between Orange and Brisbane.
“The route will greatly enhance opportunities for business between the Central West region and Queensland,” Mr Major said.
“It also has potential to attract medical specialists to the region from Queensland, enhance tourism opportunities and support travel commitments for families with children at school or university in Queensland.”
An introductory special means from February, flying to Brisbane will cost $259 one way.
