Its been a while since anyone other than Qantas flew the Canberra – Sydney route. Sinec 2004 apparently, according to this story on ABC online. However with Virgin unveiling a new fleet of jets it seems they are set to try and grab a share of the market with flights set to resume in Feb 2008.
IMO this is only good news for anyone trying to fly out of Canberra. Flights at the moment are ridiculously expensive compared with other major routes.
