HothamBus will extend its timetable for winter

HothamBus will extend its timetable for winter

HothamBus will now be available to transport new customers heading to Mount Hotham, as regional airline JETGO Australia recently announced new flights between the Gold Coast and Albury, which will commence on 29 June 2017.
The flight timetable will come just in time for Mount Hotham’s winter season and will be offered twice a week on Sundays and Thursdays.

HothamBus will offer its transport services for these flights, so that people flying into Albury from the Gold Coast will have minimal changeover time before making their way up to Hotham Heights for their skiing holiday.
HothamBus will depart form Albury at 1.30pm on Thursday through to Sunday which will meet most of Qantas, Rex, Regional and JetGo flights arriving at Albury Airport prior to 1.10pm.

Customers will arrive at Mount Hotham Alpine Resort at approximately 4.00pm on those days, and HothamBus will depart from Hotham Heights at 9.30am on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for a 12.15pm arrival back at Albury Airport.

Product Developer for HothamBus Wade John said that the flight connections combined with the bus connection would “offer seamless travel from Sydney, Queensland & WA to Australia’s steepest and easiest accessible ski resort.”
“Since airlines have changed their services, it’s now literally minutes straight off the plane and on to the bus to Hotham,” Mr John said.

“We decided to do it because we need 150 seats before we can to justify a new service. JetGo coming in from the Gold Coast justified enough seats to run an extended service.
“Moving forward from 2017 onwards, our key aim is to offer premium transport out of Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Albury and Harrietville.

We have also upgraded our booking platform which will be easier and more mobile friendly and will allow for open tickets,” he said.

The additional bus service between Albury and Mount Hotham will commence in 23 June 2017. For further details about HothamBus timetables visit www.hothambus.com.au.
