Australasian travel agent Flight Centre has launched a domestic Australian charter operation in conjunction with Alliance Airlines, with plans to add charters from New Zealand in the new year.

The company launched charter flights between Brisbane and Cairns in mid-December, operated by an Alliance Airlines' Fokker 100. Services to Hamilton Island will be added in the new year. Pending government approval, services will also be introduced between major New Zealand cities and Nadi, Fiji, in conjunction with New Zealand charter company Airworks.
