Since launching in February 2022, the team at Bonza has been working hard to get the airline ready for take-off.

In May the airline launched a nationwide search for a bunch of local legends to represent and help promote the airline, and in June the first ever ‘wear it your way’ uniform was unveiled. Featuring on-trend white custom sneakers, cotton t-shirts, and a splash of purple throughout, the idea is to let the Bonza legends' personalities shine through with the ability to mix and match based on where they are travelling, their personality, and their mood on the day.

More recently, Bonza had their IATA code confirmed – when you’re flying with Bonza you’ll be on flight ‘AB’ – and welcomed three new aircraft to their home base on the Sunshine Coast. Shazza, Bazza and Sheila are busy performing test flights up and down the east coast, and more aircraft are expected to land soon.

Bonza also announced their all-Aussie, on-demand in-flight menu with standout items including brewskies from Heaps Normal, The Handmade Food Co Pty Ltd snag in a bag, and - our favourite - choccies from Mildura Chocolate Company that don't just taste good, they *do* good. The best part? With no trolleys onboard, your food will be delivered directly to your seat after ordering on the Fly Bonza app.
