FlyPelican starting new direct flights to Newcastle from Adelaide on Thursday

FlyPelican is about to start new direct flights between Adelaide and Newcastle, boosting tourism and business links with the nation’s second largest regional city.

The inaugural service is timed for Friday night’s A-League game between the Newcastle Jets and Adelaide United at Hindmarsh Stadium then the regular service start next week.

Newcastle-based FlyPelican will operate three weekly return flights, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, to service the tourism and business markets.

FlyPelican is partnering with Alliance Airlines to operate the service, with the flight crew based in Adelaide and flights on Alliance’s 80-seat and 100-seat Fokker jets priced from $199 one way for the two hour trip.

Adelaide Airport managing director Mark Young welcomed the service which will link Adelaide with the growing tourism area north of Sydney, famed for its surf beaches and wine district.

“Newcastle has been one of our largest unserved markets and we’ve been keen to secure a service between our two cities for some time,” Mr Young said.

“It is Australia’s second largest regional city with many similarities to Adelaide, including its defence focus and proximity to the Hunter Valley wine region.


“It also provides a great alternative for passengers wanting to travel to and from the Central Coast, Hunter and North Coast regions without having to land in Sydney and find other transport options to get to Newcastle.”

FlyPelican chief executive Paul Graham said: “As Newcastle’s local airline, it is important to us to provide services the community needs.

“We are proud and excited to expand our network and give travellers greater choice with the new Adelaide direct route.”
