Qantas flights to resume to Hamilton Island
QANTAS will introduce direct flights from Sydney to Hamilton Island after an absence of about 10 years.
The service will start from July 2.
A Boeing 737-800 aircraft will run a return service on Wednesdays and Sundays as well as Saturdays during peak season.
Sydney to Hamilton Island fares are being promoted from $139, for travel from July 2, 2014, to February 25, 2015. The sale’s last day is today (Thursday, March 13).
Qantas Domestic CEO Lyell Strambi said the airline was delighted to be offering this service, also perfectly timed to provide customers with seamless connections to the iconic Hayman Island, re- opening later this year. Whitsundays Marketing and Development Limited chief executive officer Danial Rochford said the new direct services were a great boost for the region and would stimulate visitation.
