Qantas to Increase Hong Kong - Sydney and Singapore - Perth Flights

Qantas has unveiled plans to increase flights between Hong Kong and Sydney as well as between Singapore and Perth.

Qantas will operate a second service on a Friday between Hong Kong and Sydney from 11 December to 23 March, taking the operation from 11 to 12 services per week, offering double daily flights on Monday to Friday. A combination of refurbished Boeing 747 and Airbus 330 aircraft will operate this route, with selected services during Christmas and the Lunar New Year being upgauged to an A380.

Qantas will add a Tuesday and Thursday service between Singapore and Perth on a year round basis, using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft. This will take the operation from five per week to daily with the additional services beginning on 1 December 2015.

Were seeing Australian companies continue to expand their business in Asia, while the lower dollar is making Australia an even more attractive place to visit, said Qantas International CEO, Gareth Evans. Its about being agile to adjust to changes in the market where its needed - and were able to do that by maximising the utilisation of our large, varied fleet. Because this growth is coming from increased fleet utilisation, it is a very cost efficient way to meet that rising demand.
