The Flight West Story


Flight West Airlines, which was established in 1987 by Sir Dennis Buchanan MBE, is one of the most progressive and diverse airlines in the Asia Pacific region.

The Company began operations with three leased, eleven seat Beech King Air aircraft, which linked Western Queensland with Brisbane and Townsville. Today, Flight West employs over 420 staff and services a network of 34 destinations with it's modern Jet and Turboprop Aircraft.

Flight West's core network of coastal and outback destinations has always been within Queensland, but the Company has now expanded beyond the Sunshine State with the introduction of daily jet services from Cairns to Darwin, Grove and Alice Springs and international jet services to Norfolk Island from Brisbane and Sydney.

Flight West has developed a strong commercial relationship with Ansett Australia, and as a result, operates a large number of code shared flights. Where possible, the schedules of both airlines are designed to connect to the intrastate and international flights, of each partner, providing further convenience for our passengers.
