Flights to Dubbo, NSW
The gateway to Western NSW, Dubbo is where the Air Link story began, and where it continues today. Dubbo is a thriving regional city, with strong connections to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne through the major airlines. Air Link fill the niche that a large airline cannot, offering tailored flights for clients on charter aircraft, or scheduled services to Bourke, Walgett and Lightning Ridge.
Flights to Dubbo can also be flown as on-demand charters by Air Link from either Sydney, or anywhere within Australia, in whichever of our aircraft that suits your requirements. There are poor weather approaches, runway lighting and aviation fuel at Dubbo airport, so we can fly 24/7, rain or shine.
Aircraft Based in Dubbo
Air Link’s largest base is in Dubbo, where the majority of our fleet, and maintenance facility is located. As requirements vary, we move our fleet from base to base, but typically, we always have a couple of charter aircraft on standby in Dubbo for ad-hoc requirements, as well as our fleet for scheduled services to Walgett, Bourke and Lightning Ridge.

Dubbo (YSDU) has no restrictions on the type of aircraft we can fly in, or out. There are no curfews, and only occasional weather delays in summer due to thunderstorms or rain.
Dubbo is located in the heart of NSW, and the city climate is generally pleasant all year round.
