Qantas Ramps up Flights to and From Darwin
23rd Jan 2014
Travelers to and from the most northerly capital, Darwin, will find more options to choose from as Qantas increases services between Darwin and the Australia's four major capitals - Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
The additional frequencies between Darwin and Australia?s major cities will not start until March this year.
The Darwin-Perth service will see the addition of two more flights by March 7th from its current daily or seven-times weekly service to nine times per week.
Three days later, on March 10th, Qantas will ramp up its Darwin-Brisbane service with the addition of four more flights from its current once-daily flight, making it an 11-weekly flights affair. Take note, however, that the daily service with its current schedule will remain to be serviced by Boeing 767 while the four additional flights will be serviced by the airline's Boeing 737-800.
Flights between Darwin and Melbourne, meanwhile, will increase to seven times per week or once-daily by the middle of March from its current frequency of four flights per week.
Finally, starting March 30, 2014, flights between Darwin and Sydney will increase to 8 flights per week from the current seven times weekly. The additional daylight flight will occur every Tuesday every week.
The airline official remarked that the new frequencies between Darwin and four major cities will offer business and leisure customers more access in terms of availability of flights that are convenient to them especially during peak times.
