Seaplane service announced
Hotelier Dr Jerry Schwartz has announced plans for a seaplane service that will connect Sydney visitors to Newcastle and the Hunter.
Dr Schwartz is the Director of the Schwartz Family Company, who own Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, Crowne Plaza Newcastle, Novotel Newcastle, the Lovedale Brewery and other property assets in the Hunter Valley.
The direct flight from Rose Bay in Sydney’s eastern suburbs to Newcastle Harbour, and Cessnock Airport will improve accessibility to the region for both business people and tourists.
The new airline service, Blue Sky Airlines has been registered by Dr Schwartz, and will be operated by a six-seater Lake Sea Fury LA250 aircraft. Regular charter flights are proposed to start in October.
