Travellers in the Northern Territory can now take advantage of a direct connection to the Australian Capital Territory with the launch of QantasLink’s new Darwin-Canberra flights on 21 June.
The first flight connecting the two cities in nine years departs Darwin, marked by celebrations for customers at the departure gate.
QantasLink will offer up to five weekly return flights on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday operated by the Embraer E190 regional jet aircraft, delivering almost 1,000 seats on the route each week.
The E190 aircraft type made its debut on the QantasLink network last month as part of the airline’s deal with Alliance Airlines. With its size, range and economics, the 94-seat jet has opened up a number of new routes that wouldn’t have been viable with Qantas’ existing fleet.
The Darwin-Canberra service is one of the 45 routes that the Qantas Group has announced or launched since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Qantas’ Fly Flexible policy offers customers who book flights before 31 July 2021 added flexibility with unlimited fee free date changes when travelling before 28 February 2022. (A fare difference may apply).
