Jumbo History

The Jumbo Flight. Each year the Rotary Club of Turramurra organises a flight in a Jumbo Jet for children who are very ill, who may be physically or intellectually disabled, sometimes are in wheelchairs or may come from backgrounds where holidays are not possible. These children would not normally be able to travel in an aircraft, let alone a Jumbo Jet.

CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES AND UNDERPRIVILEGED CHILDREN

The Rotary Club of Turramurra organizes the children, Qantas provides the aircraft, their staff (including pilots and crew) volunteer their time, and Qantas Pathfinders attend to the ticketing and ground support. Airport charges are waived by Sydney Airport Corporation Ltd and Shell Australia generously donates the fuel.

This year's flight will be held on Saturday 18 November 2017, departing from the Domestic Terminal (ETD 1100)..
