About Jumbo Flight

Childrenwith Disabilities and Underprivileged Children

jumboflightlogo200x200This annual event involves a Boeing 747 taking children and their carers on a 90 minute joy-flight over the Sydney-Newcastle-Wollongong area.
The children are physically or intellectually disadvantaged, suffering life threatening illnesses, come from homeless backgrounds or from circumstances where holidays are not possible.

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 Viva Energy generously donates the fuel.

The flight is usually held on a Saturday in November, departing from the Domestic Terminal (ETD 1100). 2020 and 2021 flights were not held due to Covid-19.

Experience the joy of giving children a once in a lifetime opportunity.

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.
