CEO of FlyPelican, Paul Graham said “FlyPelican is very excited to be adding another route to its network.
Newcastle to Ballina (Byron Bay) is very well suited to our Jetstream 32 aircraft that seat 19 passengers. The flight time is one hour and twenty minutes. We will be operating a daily return service to start with and hopefully increase frequency as the demand grows.”
