Qantas has announced seven new domestic routes, and is deploying more widebody aircraft between major capital cities to help meet strong demand for domestic travel across Australia.
“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.”
Qantas Domestic and International CEO, Andrew David.
The new services will see Qantas’ capacity exceed 100 per cent of pre-COVID levels in the coming months, and will provide direct connections and reduce travel time for customers on the following routes:
- Townsville to Adelaide/Melbourne/Sydney
- Adelaide to Cairns/Hobart
Five of the routes will be operated by Alliance Airlines’ Embraer E190 regional jets.
They bring the total number of routes Qantas and Jetstar have added since the start of the pandemic to 45.
Qantas passengers will also see more widebody aircraft with Business Suites on flights between the East Coast capital cities into Perth and Darwin.
Usually used for long haul international flights including Perth-London, the 236-seat Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will begin operating up to nine Sydney to Perth flights per week.
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 the airline’s east-west routes.
