Good deal for those last minute trips to/from Sydney, Mudgee, Taree, Dubbo, Newcastle and Ballina.
Examples for tonight (Friday night):
- Sydney to Newcastle $72. Screenshot. Next best price is $180 one way.

Probably have more selections on mid-week flights so best to check on Monday.
We would note that the only way to pay for a ticket on the FlyPelican website is by credit card, and there is a 1-3% credit card surcharge. So, in reality, the minimum price is actually $72.72 one-way if paying by Visa or MasterCard. (Since there is no other way to pay, the credit card surcharge really ought to be included in the price upfront as this is technically drip pricing…)
FlyPelican operates a small fleet of British Aerospace Jetstream 32 planes with 19 seats. It serves a range of regional routes around NSW, as well as flights from Canberra to Newcastle and Ballina. The airline will also add Canberra-Port Macquarie flights from next month, although not all FlyPelican routes are eligible for the discounted last-minute tickets.
