Canberra-based Brindabella Airlines announced a non-stop daily service between Sydney and Cobar, which commenced 24 September 2010. The airline used a 19-seater Metroliner aircraft on this route, over a four-month trial period. They were at one point the last passenger airline to serve the airport before going into receivership in December 2013.
