QAN­TAS is re­launch­ing flights from Bal­lina to Sydney for the first time in 15 years.

A daily re­turn flight will recom­mence from the North­ern Rivers town from 29 Mar, with a to­tal of 36,000 seats on the route avail­able per year.

The flight will de­part Bal­lina By­ron Gate­way Air­port in the morn­ing and re­turn from Sydney Air­port in the evening, with Qan­tas Do­mes­tic Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer An­drew David say­ing demand for pre­mium travel to the re­gion was be­hind the re­launch.

“By­ron Bay con­tin­ues to be an in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for hol­i­day­mak­ers of all types... we’ve seen more and more lux­ury ho­tels es­tab­lished in re­cent years and we think it’s the right time for Qan­tas to again fly di­rectly to Bal­lina,” he said.

The new flights were also en­dorsed by New South Wales Min­is­ter for Tourism Stuart Ayres.
