MUMBAI: Australian carrier Qantas will increase its frequency on the Bengaluru to Sydney route this winter to cater for strong demand over the peak holiday season, the airline said on Tuesday.
“Between mid-December 2024 and late March 2025, the airline will increase flights from five per week to daily, adding over 12,000 seats between the two cities over the four-month period.The flights add to Qantas’ existing flights from Delhi to Melbourne which operate three days per week,” it said.
Qantas’ flights from India are operated with its fleet of Airbus A330 aircraft with 27 Business Class suites in 1- 2-1 configuration, with each suite featuring direct aisle access and converting into a lie-flat bed. All Qantas international fares include checked baggage allowance, food and beverages and inflight entertainment as standard with every booking.
Qantas recently announced it would accelerate a program to introduce ‘fast and free’ Wi-Fi across its existing fleet of international aircraft including A330 aircraft, with enough bandwidth for every passenger to enjoy a fast and consistent connection. The service will be progressively rolled-out on Qantas flights between India and Australia from next year. Qantas International CEO Cam Wallace said that the demand for travel between India and Australia continues to be incredibly strong. “So we’re pleased to be responding with extra flights to Sydney.
These additional flights are timed to carry more travellers to Australia in summer, while also helping more families and friends reconnect over the holiday period,” he said. Bangalore International Airport Chief Operating Officer Satyaki Raghunath said: “We are delighted by the impressive success that Qantas has experienced at BLR Airport. This expansion, commencing in the first half of December 2024, will deliver added convenience and flexibility to travelers from South and Central India, offering them a wider range of options for both business and leisure travel.”
