Travel Daily - - News -

QAN­TASLINK this morn­ing an­nounced a new di­rect route be­tween Syd­ney and Mil­dura, as well as boost­ing fre­quen­cies to Bendigo to help ex­pand vis­i­tor spend­ing in re­gional Vic­to­ria.

Ef­fec­tive 29 Mar 2020, Qan­tasLink will op­er­ate 74-seat Q400 flights four days per week on the Mil­dura route, of­fer­ing over 30,000 seats per year.

Qan­tasLink CEO John Giss­ing said the ser­vice would be the only di­rect con­nec­tion be­tween the cities, sav­ing trav­ellers about two hours com­pared to fly­ing via MEL.

“As Aus­tralia’s largest re­gional air­line, we know the value of con­nect­ing coun­try cities and we’re proud to be con­nect­ing the Sun­raysia re­gion to Syd­ney once again,” Giss­ing said.

“To­gether with the Mil­dura Ru­ral City Coun­cil, we’re pro­mot­ing the greater Mil­dura re­gion to trav­ellers across Aus­tralia and the world as a great des­ti­na­tion to visit.”

Bendigo ser­vices will also in­crease to 10 per week ef­fec­tive 30 Mar, build­ing on the suc­cess of the new route which launched ear­lier this year (TD 16 Jan).
