Reading between the lines council seems to be keen to regulate intrastate air services, pity that's not their domicile. Have a feeling they are using Jetgo in the hope a more stable airline (as far as routes go) will come along. I hope they do well, history has shown its a tough gig according to QantasLink and Impluse, not to mention a plethora of Navajo operators.

Jetgo have cancelled HVB to MEL a week into OPs with refunds for bookings over next three months, looking more and more like a "strategic" operation trying to find a home.

Hi guys,

With Jetgo due to commence flights to Wollongong on 30th October, it is interesting to note that no new terminal has been built (the old one burnt down and is now a square patch of grass). Does anyone know what they will use as a terminal as when I drove around the area I couldn't see anywhere, or any signage (probably a bit early!?).

Thanks,
Steve

I believe there is a temporary terminal in place until a new one can be opened, I can let you all know on October 30 as I am on the inaugural flight from Essendon to Wollongong and on to Brisbane.
