Qantas is to launch direct Melbourne-Darwin services from May next year.

"The introduction of Melbourne-Darwin services will help meet strong demand in the market and increase the options available to our customers in the Northern Territory and Victoria," said Group Executive Qantas Airlines Commercial, Mr Rob Gurney. "We are delighted to be adding this important north-south route to our network. The new Qantas services will support growth in business travel and tourism between Melbourne and Darwin."

Qantas currently offers direct services between Darwin and Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth and Sydney, as well as direct QantasLink flights to Alice Springs, Cairns and Gove (Nhulunbuy).

The new schedule will comprise three return Melbourne-Darwin services operating on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday, while a fourth service would operate on Mondays during the Territory's peak season from July-October.

The route will be operated by a two-class, 168-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

"Customers on Qantas CityFlyer flights enjoy dedicated customer service desks, complimentary newspapers on early morning flights and complimentary wine and beer after 4pm on weekdays," Mr Gurney added. "Our frequent flyers on the Melbourne-Darwin route will be able to access Chairmans, Business and Qantas Club lounges in Melbourne and the Qantas Club lounge in Darwin. For the convenience of business travellers, our Qantas Meeting Rooms are also available in both ports."
