WATCH: Travellers can now fly to Townsville and Darwin from the Gold Coast

Gold Coast travellers can now fly directly to Townsville and on to Darwin from Gold Coast Airport.

Regional airline Airnorth today commenced its new seasonal service that connects the three destinations, with the inaugural flight touching down on the Gold Coast this afternoon.

The new service will operate twice weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays until October 20, 2019.


Airnorth Chief Executive Officer Daniel Bowden said the addition of the Gold Coast destination is incredibly exciting not only to Airnorth, but for all business and leisure travellers in Australia.

“The announcement of this additional service means Airnorth is supporting Queensland by providing up to 25 flights weekly in, and around the state.

“This provides an abundance of opportunity not only for tourism on an international and national level, but also a fantastic opportunity for intrastate travel for all Queenslanders.”
