QF plots Kan­ga­roo Is ser­vice

Travel Daily - - News -

QAN­TAS is un­der­stood to be con­sid­er­ing a new di­rect ser­vice be­tween Syd­ney and Kan­ga­roo Island in South Aus­tralia, with the Ade­laide Ad­ver­tiser cit­ing com­ments by QF CEO Alan Joyce dur­ing the air­line’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last week.

Qan­tas held its AGM in Ade­laide, and Joyce noted strong de­mand for its cur­rent Kan­ga­roo Island flights from the SA cap­i­tal.

“This had led to us re­view­ing more op­tions on that route, which also in­cludes a di­rect Syd­ney to KI flight,” he said.

He noted it was still early days, but the re­view was fo­cused on ex­pand­ing QF ser­vices to the hol­i­day island’s Kingscote Air­port.

Qan­tas al­ready op­er­ates a sea­sonal weekly ser­vice from Melbourne to Kingscote, along with three to four ADL flights.

South Aus­tralian Tourism Com­mis­sion CEO Rod­ney Har­rex hailed the pos­si­bil­ity of a new Qan­tas Syd­ney-KI flight.

“It would cre­ate con­nec­tiv­ity with in­ter­state and in­ter­na­tional visi­tors, which is crit­i­cal for tourism growth in Kan­ga­roo Island,” the re­port quoted him as say­ing.

Re­gional Ex­press also op­er­ates daily Ade­laide-Kingscote flights.
