Qantas has announced a major expansion of its network from the nation’s capital with three new routes commencing in the next month from Canberra.

Qantas has announced a major expansion of its network from the nation’s capital with three new routes commencing in the next month from Canberra.

Travel is slowing going back to some kind of ‘normal’, with news of increased domestic flight capacity and border reopenings, which is most definitely a sign of positive things to come.

After the recent announcements that Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin Australia have each added thousands of new seats from destinations such as Sydney, Melbourne, Port Macquarie, Hobart and more, now it’s Canberra’s turn to step into the spotlight.

“We’ve taken a fresh look at our network, creating new direct services, which were previously only available by connecting via another city, saving customers up to two hours travel time.”

Andrew David, Qantas Domestic & International CEO

Since state and territory border restrictions eased in September, Qantas has announced a total of nine new routes across Australia.

Qantas will be added three new routes from the capital, over the next month.

The details of these three new routes are:

  • Canberra – Sunshine Coast – which will operate three times a week and start on Thursday 19 November
  • Canberra – Cairns – which will operate twice a week and starts on Saturday 21 November
  • Canberra – Hobart – which will operate three times a week and starts on Friday 4 December

The flights will be operated by QantasLink’s dual class Boeing 717s featuring 12 seats in Business and 98 seats in Economy.

The new routes follow on from the recent successful launch of Canberra-Gold Coast flights, the reinstatement of flights to Perth, and additional services to Brisbane.

“These flights are great news for travellers who will now have more direct flights between Canberra and Cairns, Noosa and Hobart. It will also mean we can get more of our people back to work.”

Andrew David, Qantas Domestic & International CEO

To celebrate these new routes, Qantas is launching a three-day sale with special fares*:

  • Canberra – Cairns from $199 one-way
  • Canberra – Sunshine Coast from $169 one-way
  • Canberra – Hobart from $159 one-way

*Selected travel dates apply.
