Qantas service increase

Article content

7 June 2010

Qantas says it will increase services between Melbourne and London to five times a week when it takes delivery of its eighth A380, then will go six times a week after a ninth is delivered. Next March a tenth will arrive, meaning a daily service can commence. The airline plans to operate 20 A380s eventually.

Qantas currently has six A380s in service and expects to take delivery of its seventh at the end of this year, enabling Sydney-London A380 services to move to a daily schedule.

Qantas chief executive officer Alan Joyce said: "We are delighted to be making this commitment to introduce daily A380 services on one of our flagship routes.

"The Qantas A380 first flew between Melbourne and London in January 2010, and we consider it a priority to increase the frequency of those services when the next tranche of A380s begins arriving from late this year.

"Not only will this benefit customers travelling from Melbourne to London, it will also enable a connection to A380 services for Qantas passengers flying into Singapore from Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth."

The carrier also announced it will also expand its codeshare operations on British Airways services between London via Singapore each week, as well as between London Heathrow and Europe, adding six new destinations: Rome, Milan, Toulouse, Prague, Warsaw and Budapest.

Qantas will also increase the frequency of its codesharing on services between London Heathrow and Nice, Stockholm and Amsterdam.
