TD breaking news – Qantas returns to Sunshine Coast plus MEL-OOL flights

QF premium offering returns to more Queensland routes. 

Qantas has just announced the resumption of direct flights between Sydney and Maroochydore, as well as the launch of services between Melbourne and the Gold Coast.

Part of QF’s twice yearly schedule update, the new services have been enabled by “smarter flying,” with the introduction of two leased Boeing 717 QantasLink aircraft from early 2016 and a reduction in intra-WA flying, plus a shift to smaller aircraft on other routes “in line with passenger demand”.

Qantas head of domestic, Andrew David, said the Maroochydore services would be operated from 21 December using a two-class 717 with Q Streaming inflight entertainment via iPads in every seat. The new daily Melbourne-Gold Coast Boeing 737 flights will commence on 25 October, with both additions to help the carrier meet the “growing demand for premium leisure services” on the routes.

Other schedule changes will see an additional daily Qantas frequency between Sydney and the Gold Coast from February next year, as well as more flying from Hobart.

Launch fares on Sydney-Maroochydore are on sale now from $89 one way in economy, while Melbourne-Gold Coast launch prices start at $99 one way.
