Federal Member for Paterson 3 May 2004 WELCOME INTRODUCTION FOR NEWCASTLE TO BRISBANE FLIGHTS The introduction of daily flights from Newcastle Airport to Brisbane by Virgin Blue, is great news for consumers and businesses in the Hunter region. The Federal Member for Paterson, Bob Baldwin, said increased services and competition between airlines will be a plus for the area. “With the launch of the new service tomorrow, comes the addition of more options for consumers in what is the largest population of people outside of the major capital cities,” Mr Baldwin said. “Choice for travellers also extends to the business community, where the provision of services can be a drawcard for visitors and convenient for businesses people needing to travel interstate. “I welcome Virgin Blue’s commitment to the local area and the launch of this new service.”
