Qantas Adds More Flights to the 'Golden Triangle' Route

6th Jun 2012

The so-called Golden Triangle market (Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne), Australia's most lucrative air routes, will see its number of flights increased by 22 on August this year as Qantas boosts its domestic services recently.

Qantas will add 11 return flights on its Sydney-Melbourne route per week starting July 9. On August 23, the carrier will also be adding 11 more return flights on its Sydney-Brisbane route each week.

The aforementioned flights will see the addition of 400,000 seats to Qantas' east coast services.

This may be hardly a David vs Goliath classic duel, but the Qantas vs Virgin Australia battle is heating up in the domestic front triggering an airfare war much to the delight of the travelers. The competition is not only exclusive to these full-service behemoths as the country's budget airlines, Jetstar and Tiger Airways Australia, are also elbowing each other to get a bigger market share, allowing air tickets to fall in the process.

The more aggressive player, Jetstar, is boosting its weekly frequency between Sydney and Melbourne by 21 return flights beginning August 16. On November 15, it will add seven more return flights between Sydney and Adelaide.

The Jetstar Qantas will also boost its Gold Coast frequencies next year from the country's major hubs, Sydney, Newcastle and Adelaide, commencing April 2013.

The increased capacity between these major urban centers is a testament to Qantas' genuine care for its clients as it offers nothing but the best products and services available to domestic travelers.
