Adelaide to Cairns on the Flying Kangaroo
FAR North Queenslanders wishing to escape our mild winter and taste the chill of Adelaide will now be able to choose from either Virgin or Qantas for their air travel.
Qantas announced this week, they will commence flying Adelaide to Cairns in August 2021, operating 4 flights a week.
The route will be operated by Embraer E190 regional jets as part of QantasLink’s partnership with Alliance Airlines with a seating capacity of 94 passengers.
Qantas Domestic and International CEO Andrew David said the new routes would support the growing demand for domestic tourism.
“As most international travel remains off limits for now, Australians are taking more regular holidays within the country and we expect these new direct flights to key tourism destinations will be popular with travellers,” said Mr David.
In April Jetstar announced a new service linking Cairns and Newcastle due to commence in late June.
