Qantas adds more Gladstone flights
QANTASLINK will fly more flights to Gladstone from May.
QantasLink Executive Manager, Mr Narendra Kumar said the increased capacity would further meet demand from regional communities and industries including the resource sector.
Eight new services between Brisbane and Gladstone will come on line in May adding approximately 600 seats at peak times.
“QantasLink operates to 21 destinations across Queensland, more than any other airline, and more than any other state across our network,” Mr Kumar said.
“Regional Queensland has always been central to our operations and, following recent capacity increases, we are ready to extend this across even more of our network.”
Last month, QantasLink added approximately 5,000 additional seats per week across a range of Queensland regional routes, with the arrival of another new flagship Bombardier Q400.
Over coming months, Barcaldine, Blackall, Bundaberg, Emerald, Gladstone, Hervey Bay, Longreach, Mackay, Moranbah, Rockhampton and Roma will all benefit from additional and upgraded services to and from Brisbane, with many flights operated by the 74-seat jet-like Q400s.
