WHEN it comes to air fares, Riverina travellers are quite price sensitive, according to a poll of The Daily Advertiser readers.

Regional passenger airline Jetgo last weekend revealed it would offer direct flights between Wagga and Brisbane on 36-seat Embraer jets from February 13.

Lowest fares for the one-hour-and-40 minute flights will be $197, the airline’s managing director Paul Bredereck revealed.

A poll of 277 Advertiser readers this week found $197 was the maximum fare 133 of them (48.01 per cent) would pay for the flight. Another 102 (36.82 per cent) would be prepared to pay a maximum of $250 for the trip, while 26 (9.39 per cent) would pay a maximum $300 and nine (3.25 per cent) would pay a maximum of $400.
