Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 23 February 2009

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 Boeing 737-800
