    Exclusive interview with new Australian LCC Bonza

    A new independent low fare airline will be launched in Australia early next year, utilising Boeing 737-8 aircraft. Of the 15 largest domestic aviation markets in the world, Australia is the only country without an independent low cost airline.

    Bonza Founder & CEO Tim Jordan said: “Bonza’s mission is to encourage more travel by providing more choices and ultra-low fares, particularly into leisure destinations where travel is now often limited to connections via major cities.” 

    CAPA is delighted to welcome Tim Jordan to CAPA Live, for his first industry interview since announcing the formation of the new airline. In this exclusive discussion, we will review the Australian market, understand why this is the perfect time to launch an airline, and explore plans for the launch.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has placed enormous economic and health strains on South Pacific nations. Connectivity has collapsed and, with it, the lifeblood of many island economies, inbound tourism. Now 18 months into the crisis, and with no immediate end in sight, many challenges have become acute:

    • Regulation – many of the national civil aviation authorities are running low on funding, raising the spectre of who and how the region’s industry will be regulated into the future;

    • Infrastructure – low utilisation of airport and tourism infrastructure raises questions about the maintenance of equipment and the availability of resources to maintain a visitor economy when borders re-open;

    • Airline health – the region’s airlines are struggling with very low passenger demand. Cargo operations are a lifeline, but question-marks remain about the health of key inbound source markets and propensity for travel even when it’s safe to do so.

    Strong leadership and decisive action involving targeted financial support is urgently required to ensure the region successfully navigates the remainder of this crisis.
