Alliance Airlines will operate a minimum of 40 direct flights between Melbourne and Kununurra in a code-share arrangement with Virgin Australia.

“We’re really excited about Alliance’s Melbourne-Kununurra services. The Kimberley region is an astonishing part of Australia”, said Lisa Byers, General Manager of The Travel Authority Corporate & Resource in Fremantle.

The flights will begin in May 2020, to complement the start of Kununurra’s tourism season, including the 20th anniversary of the annual Ord Valley Muster.
