Qantas adds Queenstown capacity

Article content

9 June 2010

Qantas Regional General Manager New Zealand and Pacific Islands, Mr Grant Lilly, said the seven return services would coincide with the increase in leisure travel over the summer period.

"The extra capacity will benefit the New Zealand tourism industry and we are pleased to offer our customers an extra service each week on top of our existing three return services per week on the Melbourne to Queenstown route - it will also help to encourage Australians to take their holidays in Queenstown," Mr Lilly said.

"Our full service offering allows passengers to enjoy a meal or refreshment while they sit back, relax and enjoy the inflight entertainment in either our Business or Economy Class cabins."

The additional weekly flights will operate from 18 December 2010 until 29 January 2011.

The extra weekly service, which will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, will offer Melbourne to Queenstown all inclusive fares from £374 return and Queenstown to Melbourne all inclusive fares from £337 return.

These extra summer services are on top of supplementary flights added to support demand throughout the winter ski season, which are about to commence for a third year in a row.

As part of the increased winter schedule, an extra weekly service will operate between Melbourne and Queenstown, as well as between Brisbane and Queenstown.
