Virgin Australia To Launch Daily Cairns-Weipa Service
Starting sometime next year, Virgin Australia will launch a daily Cairns-Weipa service using an ATR 72-500. The Queensland Government said that passenger traffic on the route has risen 15% over the past two years and it "made sense to open it out to the wider market". Sourced from: Travel Weekly
Currently, QantasLink flies from Cairns to Weipa four times a day.
