Further to our recent update about Qantas operating its Boeing 787 Dreamliners between Sydney and Perth, the national carrier has announced seven new domestic routes, as well as widebody aircraft deployments on domestic routes.
The new routes—Townsville to Adelaide/Melbourne/Sydney; Adelaide to Cairns/Hobart; Sydney-Uluru and Perth-Gold Coast—provide direct connections and reduce travel time for customers.
They also bring the total number of routes Qantas and Jetstar have added since the start of the pandemic to 45.
“We’re delighted to see the domestic travel market starting to flourish again. These new Qantas routes will, no doubt, be very popular,” said The Travel Authority Group’s CEO, Peter Hosper.
Five of the routes will be operated by 94-seat Embraer E190 regional jets as part of QantasLink’s partnership with Alliance Airlines.
Travellers will also see more widebody aircraft with Business Suites on flights from East Coast capital cities into Darwin and Perth.
Widebody Qantas Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which serviced international routes into Asia, will operate on more flights into Darwin from Sydney and Brisbane, and also into Perth from Sydney and Melbourne. These will be added to the A330s already flying on east-west routes.
Qantas Domestic and International CEO Andrew David said the new routes would support the growing demand for domestic tourism.
“As most international travel remains off limits for now, Australians are taking more regular holidays within the country and we expect these new direct flights to key tourism destinations will be popular with travellers,” said Mr David.
