Bonza Airlines: Unaffected by 737 MAX 9 Grounding and Launching First-Ever Sale

The recent grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX 9 by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has sent ripples across the global aviation industry. Despite the absence of MAX 9s in Australia, the news has caught the attention of the media and the public due to the MAX branding's association with past accidents. Amidst this, Bonza, Australia's newest airline, has moved swiftly to reassure its customers.


Bonza's Fleet Remains Unaffected

Bonza, which introduced the 737 MAX into its fleet a year ago, confirmed that there is no grounding order or safety issue with its fleet of four MAX 8s or the two that will be wet-leased from Canada's Flair Airlines. This announcement comes in the wake of an incident involving an Alaska Airlines 737 MAX 9, where part of the aircraft detached from the fuselage. Bonza has been proactive in distancing its MAX 8 aircraft from the issue, ensuring that no uninformed and damaging commentary finds its way into the media or social messaging platforms.


Reassuring Customers

Bonza is keen to reassure Australians and visitors to the country that its aircraft are safe to fly. The events affecting the 737 MAX coincide with the launch of Bonza's first-ever sale, offering an incentive for prospective bargain hunters to move quickly as the sale ends today.

Bonza's First-Ever Sale

The low-cost carrier has released 24,000 seats to and from Australia's Gold Coast Airport (OOL), with fares starting from as low as AU$59 ($40) or less for one-way travel until January 31, 2024. The AU$59 or less flights cover flights from the Gold Coast to various destinations including Melbourne Tullamarine, Melbourne Avalon, Mildura, Albury, and Launceston in Tasmania. They also are on sale for flights in Queensland from the Gold Coast to Cairns, Mackay, Mt Isa, Rockhampton, Townsville, and the beautiful Whitsunday Coast.

The "Bonza Effect"

CEO Tim Jordan said Bonza had connected more than 650,000 Aussies in 2023, and the airline is kicking off 2024 with a big incentive to start the year with a dash of adventure made possible through affordable and accessible air travel. Jordan also believes that the "Bonza Effect" will bring more considerable savings to domestic travelers this year, particularly as many Australians are still battling with the high cost of living pressures that have endured since early last year. As with all airline sales, there are the usual raft of terms and conditions, and these are all available on the Fly Bonza app, the only place to grab these bargains and book directly with the airline.
