Get to Hervey Bay from Essendon Airport

20.06.2017 – 02:06 pm

Jetgo Australia has announced direct flights between Hervey Bay and Melbourne will start next month (Friday, July 21).

Hervey Bay is renowned for its Whale Watching. With a population of approximately 63,000 residents, the city has a wonderful subtropical climate. Temperatures range from 14 to 23 Centigrade in winter and 22 to 29 in summer. Rainfall is low and there are more fine days than other Queensland holiday centres.

Jetgo will launch a twice weekly service flying from Hervey Bay to Essendon using their 37 and 44 seat Embraer Regional Jets. Initially the twice weekly service will fly on Sundays and Fridays. The flight from Essendon Airport to Hervey Bay is under two and a half hours.
Jetgo has a reputation for developing innovative regional routes, Jetgo Managing Director Airlines Paul Bredereck, said.
“We are continually looking at new routes and services and responding to passenger demand,” he said.
“Our fleet of smaller fast jet aircraft allows us to open up thinner point to point markets, and respond to changing passenger demands.”
Jetgo currently flies from Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Townsville, Rockhampton, Dubbo and Wagga Wagga and Albury.

To book, go to, or call between 8am and 5pm (AEST) on 1300 328 000.
