Bonza still flying high

Must read

LOW-COST airline Bonza has assured passengers that it’s ‘business as usual’ for them, following the shocking incident on the weekend experienced by Alaska Airlines.

The company, which services Whitsunday Coast Airport, has moved quickly to assure people that it operates the 737-8 Max aircraft.

It does not operate the Boeing 737-9 Max jetliners, which have been grounded, after part of one aircraft fell off during an Alaska Airlines flight, leaving a gaping hole.

The passengers onboard were OK but debris that flew out of the cabin is still being found on the ground.

The Federal Aviation Administration (US airline regulator) ordered the immediate grounding of Boeing 737-9 Max jetliners following the incident.

“Bonza doesn’t operate any of the 737 MAX-9 aircraft that have been temporarily grounded for inspection,” Bonza CEO Tim Jordan said.

“We have received assurance from Boeing that there is no impact to our fleet.”

Meanwhile, to celebrate the new year, Bonza has released 24,000 seats for $59 or less, one-way, per person, to and from the Gold Coast, including to and from the Whitsundays.

The seats are for travel until January 31, 2024. 

Also, to mark 12 months since Bonza achieved its licence to fly, in January 2023, the company is holding a 50 per cent off sale across its entire network.

The four-day sale is due to end on Thursday, January 11, for travel between February 6 – March 6, March 13 – March 27, April 28 – June 19, July 16 – September 12, 2024, with the promo code THUMBSUP.
