Link Airways will live up to its name in November, being the only airline to link Canberra and Hobart via non-stop flights as domestic border restrictions ease.
Using a Saab 340B Plus aircraft, the service will start at four return flights per week from 5 November 2020, before growing to 11 weekly flights in 2021.
The service had originally been slated to begin in December, but with Tasmania on track to open its border to the ACT in late October, the first flight will take off several weeks ahead of schedule.

“We’re excited to partner with a local Canberra business to connect travellers with Tasmania,” said Canberra Airport’s Head of Aviation, Michael Thomson.
“Canberra tourism and business are ready to welcome back travellers to the Capital and Canberrans are ready to get away, and with flights starting just before Christmas, there is no better time to book your next holiday”, Thomson said.
Fares begin at $219 per passenger, one-way, including 15kg of complimentary checked baggage and 7kg of cabin baggage.
Link Airways was previously known as Fly Corporate.
