Qantas is to increase capacity in the Northern
Territory, adding additional services on its Darwin-Perth and
Darwin-Adelaide routes from mid-June.
The airline normally increases its services to
the Territory during the dry season, but this year will see more
services being added to the schedule than last year.
Qantas will increase its Darwin-Perth weekly
schedule by three return flights, bringing the total number of weekly return services on the route to 10.
In addition, the airline will
also increase the number of Darwin-Adelaide return services
available by three flights per week, also bringing the total
number of weekly return services between the two cities to 10.
Qantas Regional General Manager
Northern Territory Mr John Cason said the extra Darwin-Perth flights would mean that
passengers would have two services to choose from on the peak
business travel days of Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
He also said
the new Darwin-Adelaide flights would operate on Tuesdays and
Thursdays as return services, with one additional return
service operating Darwin-Adelaide on Saturdays and returning as an
Adelaide- Darwin service on Sundays.
All services on the
Darwin-Perth and Darwin-Adelaide route are operated by 168-seat
