Domestic travel set to fly high as Australian borders open

November 11, 2020 Headline News No Comments
Domestic travel in Australia is taking off as borders finally tumble. Earlier this month, Qantas confirmed plans to significantly boost its domestic flights after NSW allowed unrestricted passenger service to resume to Victoria from Nov. 23.

According to Routes Digest, there are currently just 10 return flights per week between SYD and MEL, but after Nov. 23 the Qantas Group intends to operate 117 return flights per week. Qantas is also expanding its network from Canberra with the launch of three new nonstop domestic routes over the course of the next month (Sunshine Coast, Cairns and Hobart.)

The flights follow on from the recent launch of CBR-Gold Coast flights, the reinstatement of flights to Perth and additional services to Brisbane.. “With international borders still closed, Australians are more inspired than ever to explore places in their own backyard,” Qantas Domestic & International CEO Andrew David said. Since state and territory border restrictions eased in September, Qantas has announced nine new routes across Australia. It is interesting to note the share price of Webjet and Flight Centre are also reflecting domestic travel growth.
