Bonza’s chief commercial officer Carly Povey says that “It’s time to see more of your own backyard for less.” She went on to say that Bonza is dedicated to make traveling more accessible to more people and to better connect regions, with 93 per cent of Bonza routes are currently not used by any other airline and 96 per cent currently not used by any other low cost/low budget airline.
“It’s important that Aussie travellers know we’re on sale, not having a sale. We’re committed to low-cost fares which will, in turn, stimulate new markets for Australia’s domestic tourism industry. We’re confident whenever customers choose to travel, all our fares and not just our starting fares will represent great value,” Povey said.
