QantasLink announces more flights for regional Queensland.

More QantasLink flights will be introduced to operate across regional Queensland from early April 2010, Qantas’s regional arm said yesterday.

QantasLink said the expansion in the number of its flights would occur following the delivery of its 20th Bombardier Q400 aircraft which has a seating capacity of 74. It will bring the number of these Q400 aircraft to be based in Queensland to ten.

The aircraft will be used to operate two extra Bundaberg-Brisbane return services and two additional Emerald-Brisbane return services every week from the 6th of April.

In addition to these new services QantasLink will also add five Q400 Gladstone-Brisbane return services will be operated each weekday. Combined, the increase in capacity will be over 1400 seats, said QantasLink.

QantasLink Executive Manager Narendra Kumar said the new schedule will also create “further travel opportunities for regional communities and benefit local business and tourism.”

The increase in flights will also have a positive effect for the economy in terms of Fly-In Fly-out operations for the mining sector in the regions further west of these areas.

This development will no doubt improve the number of choices of travel times available to visitors, and is considered an important step on the road to increasing regional Queensland tourism.
