Qantas upgrading international routes
In an update to its international network, the flying kangaroo will introduce its B787 Dreamliner aircraft on the Sydney-Honolulu route for
the first time.
Replacing the current A330 used on the route, the upgauge will give passengers the broad choice of Economy, Premium Economy and Business cabins on the popular leisure route.
The announcement comes ahead of Qantas’ return to Shanghai this weekend after more than three years of ceased operations.
Elsewhere, Qantas and Jetstar are preparing for several new and upgraded services over the next month as international demand continues to surge. Among these are:
- New routes from Brisbane including Qantas to Wellington and Honiara and Jetstar to Tokyo (Narita)
- An increase between Sydney and New York (via Auckland) to four flights per week
- An increase of Jetstar’s Brisbane-Auckland service to daily flights
- An upgauge on QF’s Sydney-Bali flights, from a B737 to an A330
- Increased frequencies on Melbourne-Hong Kong, Singapore, and Los Angeles route
- Doubled frequencies to Tokyo, providing four daily Australia-Japan flights from November 26
