Regional carrier JetGo Australia has suspended its scheduled services after entering voluntary administration on 1 June.
A statement from administrators Jonathan McLeod and Bill Karageozis says that the carrier will continue to operate limited charter services while scheduled services will be suspended “for the duration of the administration period”.
There has been no indication of how much creditors are owed, with further details expected to be released at a later time.
FlightGlobal schedules show that, at the time it entered administration, JetGo was operating flights from Brisbane and Melbourne to regional centres in New South Wales and Queensland.
It had also planned to launch flights from Brisbane to Karratha in August, with the intention of extending those to Singapore in future, under an agreement with the City of Karratha.
Its fleet consists of two Embraer ERJ-135s, two ERJ-140s and one ERJ-145. Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that four of these jets are owned by the airline, while the ERJ-145 is leased from Regional One.
JetGo had also been due to take delivery of an E190 in July that was to be used on the Karratha services, but that now appears unlikely.
The privately-owned carrier had reportedly been banking on an equity infusion by a new investor, but it appears that did not eventuate. Managing director Paul Bredereck had previously told staff in an email that it was working with consultants on ways to boost its cash flow in the absence of the new investment.
