Jetstar has this morning revealed it is soon to launch direct flights from Brisbane to the Red Centre.

From August this year the low cost carrier will offer thrice weekly flights between the Queensland capital and Uluru.

Brisbane Airport said the new flights which would operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays would be a “convenient gateway” for both domestic and international travellers to the world renowned rock.

For added convenience, the new flights will be timed to connect with a number of international arrivals across BNE’s network.

Brisbane Airport Corporation’s CEO Julieanne Alroe welcomed the new route, saying it had taken “a lot of time and negotiations” to get it off the ground.

“Having convenient direct flights to more iconic domestic destinations will encourage more and more international visitors to choose Brisbane as their preferred gateway to Australia.”

“This is why it’s important to work together and to celebrate each new service, as every additional flight brings with it a raft of benefits for the city and state, as well as Australia’s regional centres,” she said.

Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said today’s announcement was another win for Tourism in Queensland and would support up to 100 jobs a year.

“Through the Queensland Government’s Attracting Aviation Investment Fund we’ve partnered with Jetstar to secure this new route and give thousands of tourists’ direct access to Brisbane from Uluru,” she said.
