I hadn't realised that the launch has now been postponed to 11 August, with only 2 weekly flights...

I’ve just booked a return trip Melbourne to Busselton in March next year for my nephew‘s wedding. I’m not holding my breath on either the route still operating or being allowed into the Kingdom of Westralia from Victoria

Launch postponed to 1 September, coincidentally the day before JQ's other inaugural route to CBR:

They should postpone it to March 2022 so they can say it's two years late 😂

Perhaps they should just say it’s postponed until Mark allows entry without quarantine or testing requirements. It won’t be financially viable until that point anyway, so let them decided whether they really want the service or not.

My guess is not…

I'm guessing this won't be happening after tonight's announcement by the dictator.
and after that comment that'll be the last time we hear from you. I'd hide now just in case the WA gov says you've gone "missing" in the morning 😂

On a slightly more serious this route might be taking a Jetstar record for longest route announcement to launch, it'll be well over 24 months by the time it happens (I was going to say Qantas group record but then remembered this is project sunrise 😂 ).
