After unloading and then loading several passengers and their bags, VH-ZJG continued to Townsville, again as JG73.
As we reported recently, JetGo's other ERJ-140 VH-ZJE surprised local plane spotters by operating the Townsville to Rockhampton and Gold Coast return services from late May.

Earlier on Thursday 8 June, VH-ZJE operated the Southbound JG70 service from Townsville to Rockhampton and the Gold Coast but later positioned from the Gold Coast to Sydney as JG90.
VH-ZJE had replaced Embraer E-135LR VH-JGB based out of Townsville. Now that VH-ZJG has become based out of Townsville, it will now operate JetGo's various Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charters as well as the JG70/73 Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) services from the Northern capital.
Of interest, VH-ZJG was delivered to JetGo Australia in Brisbane in October 2016 as N297SK. It was the first of two 44-seat Embraer ERJ-140LR (ERJ-135KL) regional jet aircraft delivered to the airline. VH-ZJE (ex N295SK) was delivered in January this year.

As we've also mentioned, JetGo is also reportedly due to take delivery of a larger 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145LR during this year. The aircraft is reported to be N577RP which is also operated for Republic Airways Holdings.
Sincere thanks to local plane spotter Kayanne H for taking the time to capture and send through these great photos!
