Sunshine Coast Airport General Manager Peter Pallot expressed his regret at Jetstar’s announcement today to cancel their Adelaide to Sunshine Coast route effective July 1 2008.
“High fuel prices have been blamed for Jetstar’s decision and this is something which is totally out of our control. It’s really disappointing from the Sunshine Coast Airport’s point of view as it has been a popular route for both business and leisure commuters.
“Our relationship with Jetstar remains strong and we are very pleased that their Sydney and Melbourne routes into the Sunshine Coast remain unchanged.
“Sydney and Melbourne are important business and leisure markets for the region and we will continue to work with all carriers to develop the number of flights into these two markets.
“Should fuel prices retreat, we will be in a strong position to regain the Adelaide route,” Mr Pallot said.
