It operation began in Tamworth with only one flight and one pilot which is  known as Tamworth Air Taxi Service, serving rural communities in New South Wales and Queensland. After 36 years of growth and uniting with many smaller commuter operators, this name was adopted in 1987.  In 1988 Australian Airlines obtained 26% of Eastern Australian Airlines which was publicly launched from East-West Airlines, and also the airline became a completely owned subsidiary in 1991.
