The fledgling flyer has revealed the Queensland terminal will become its third home base, after previously establishing headquarters in Melbourne and on the Sunshine Coast.
Avalon is among 11 routes that will be serviced by Bonza’s distinctive purple and white passenger jets operating out of the Gold Coast from November.
CEO Tim Jordan said the move would connect existing Bonza destinations with Australia’s most popular tourist hot spot.
“It is a huge boost for the economy and allows people in our existing destinations the opportunity to book an affordable flight to Gold Coast Airport and take a much-deserved holiday or long-awaited visit to friends and family,” Mr Jordan said.
Bonza began flying between Avalon and the Sunshine Coast in February and currently operates three flights a week between the two destinations, with a fourth due to be added next month.
Fares on the new Gold Coast route will go on sale soon, at an expected starting price of $79.
Jetstar currently operates seven flights between Avalon and Coolangatta each week.
