Bonza, Australia's newest low-cost independent airline, has announced they are getting closer to take-off and clearer on potential start dates. 

Bonza is getting ready to turn the skies purple with low-cost fares and will connect Newcastle Airport to the Sunshine Coast with four flights per week, and to the Whitsundays Coast twice weekly. 

Bonza has released an open letter to all Aussies to provide an update on when they can expect to grab a low-cost flight to one of the 17 destinations on offer. 

The letter, penned by Carly Povey - the airline’s Chief Commercial Officer, explains they are progressing well towards going on-sale but recommends people shouldn’t wait for them to book their essential July and August flights.

Behind the scenes Bonza is busy recruiting hundreds of Bonza legends, progressing through their regulatory process, taste testing their all Aussie menu, stitching together purple unfirms, and finalising onboard details from seat headrests to lighting.

In the meantime, whilst their team of legends is getting ready to go on sale, they are asking people to download the Fly Bonza app. It's going to be the only place to book direct and is available via the Apple app store or Google Play.
