The Embraer ERJ-135LR regional jet is one very unique bird! It’s the only RJ able to land at and take off from Dubbo City Regional Airport in Dubbo, NSW, Australia. It’s a smaller RJ with a 36 seat seating capacity but fits into the confines of the Bombardier Q300/400 and Saab 340 turboprops – I can’t wait to fly on this big bird in August!
Disclaimer: My early impressions of the ERJ-135LR are only what I am seeing – use this info at your discretion! A more in-depth review will come after I get back…..
Having never booked my own flights before, I was a tad apprehensive when I booked my flights to Melbourne…. but I need not have worried! And here is why….
Booking your own flights is not as bad as it sounds – the ease of which the folks at JETGO make it is a mind easer. All you need to do is select your departure and arrival destinations and dates of flying and go through the booking process providing information as they request it….
I am flying from Dubbo to Melbourne (Avalon) as a round trip (automatically set as default) and wasn’t flexible with dates so I typed Dubbo into the From box and Melbourne (Avalon) into the To box – the Depart date was 21/8/16 and Return On date was 1/9/16 and 1 adult (12+). Then you go through each section providing information such as passenger details, a contact number and email address (email address is a mandatory field as JETGO uses this email address to forward you your itinerary and E-Ticket) and credit card details for payment. They then confirm your payment and itinerary – you can print off the basic information on the final Confirmation screen as proof of payment.
That’s all there is to it – if you don’t want (or like) to book online, you do have an alternate option. That option is to ring JETGO’s central reservations hotline on 1300328000 within Australia (+61 1300328000 outside Australia)
