    It is being reported that they have sold over a hundred thousand seats online in the first few weeks of operation which very much exceeds market expectations.

    The model is interesting as other than there Melbourne base they operate to and from secondary city’s only rather than following the existing AU airline networks of flying to and from and via AU capital cities.
    It is an interesting concept that coupled with the other successful full service mainline operator REX who also has a very large capital to country city operation using 40 Saab aircraft that is being increasingly fed by its growing mainline operation that uses ex Virgin 737’s it would be reasonable to suggest that the existing large Australian (Qantas and Virgin) duopoly is under considerable pressure.
