Qan­tas to switch Dubai ser­vices to Sin­ga­pore

Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -

QAN­TAS IS TO REROUTE its A380 Syd­ney-Dubai-Lon­don ser­vice via Sin­ga­pore from next year, as part of an ex­tended part­ner­ship with Emi­rates (sub­ject to reg­u­la­tory ap­proval).

From March 25, ex­ist­ing A380 ser­vices QF1 and QF2 will go via Sin­ga­pore, re­plac­ing one of Qan­tas’s two daily Sin­ga­pore-Syd­ney A330 flights. On the same day, it will up­grade its daily Sin­ga­pore-Mel­bourne flights (QF35 and QF36) to the A380, and boost its sec­ond, thrice-weekly A330 ser­vice (QF37 and QF38) to daily.

The changes will co­in­cide with the launch of the air­line’s di­rect Dream­liner flights be­tween Heathrow and Perth. Th­ese will route Lon­don-Perth-Mel­bourne, re­plac­ing the ex­ist­ing Lon­don-Dubai-Mel­bourne flights, mean­ing Qan­tas will no longer of­fer any ser­vices to Dubai on its own metal.

From 2019, Qan­tas will re­move 30 econ­omy seats on its A380s to make way for six ex­tra busi­ness class and 25 pre­mium econ­omy seats. All 12 of its su­per­jum­bos are ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of 2020. qan­tas.com
