Qantas today (24 November 2008) launched non-stop services between Australia and South America. The inaugural Sydney to Buenos Aires flight left Sydney this morning and is scheduled to land in Buenos Aires at 11.00am local time.

The airline will operate three return services per week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, using three-class Boeing 747-400 aircraft.

"Argentina is a popular destination for Australian travellers and we are seeing continued passenger growth between Australia and South America," Qantas Group General Manager Sales and Distribution, Mr Rob Gurney said. "These new services will enable us to grow business and leisure travel to and from Argentina and strengthen tourism and trade links. They will also offer passengers connections to other destinations in South America, including Brazil."

Qantas previously offered one-stop services to Buenos Aires, via Auckland, between 1998 and 2002.

 "We have maintained services to South America via our successful codeshare with oneworld partner LAN since then and will continue to offer six services per week from Sydney via Auckland to Santiago, Chile," Mr Gurney added.
