New itineraries between Adelaide and Port Lincoln have made travelling across Australia easier for holidaymakers, it has been suggested.
Narendra Kumar, executive manager of QantasLink - the airline launching the flights - said the journeys will reduce flying time for a number of passengers.
"We are offering the people of Port Lincoln our premium product," he remarked, "[Which] will offer 3,400 seats each week between the two markets."
According to the organisation, it is looking to expand its operations in South Australia and this signifies a step forward in this regard.
Flights will be aboard QantasLink's jet-like 74-seat Q400 aircraft and Mr Kumar revealed that nine staff members have been added to their roster to cope with the additional traffic.
Qantas recently announced it is expanding its services between the UK, Melbourne and Sydney - a move that could aid British tourists in getting back home from the country more easily.
