QantasLink’s inaugural flight between Brisbane and Hamilton Island touched down Friday, November 28, giving customers more travel options travelling to The Whitsunday Islands.
QantasLink will operate four return services per week – between Fridays and Mondays – on its 74 seat Q400 aircraft, which is ideally suited to the route.
QantasLink Chief Executive Officer John Gissing said “This is great news for tourism and The Whitsunday’s 74 tropical islands, including the renowned Hamilton Island and the ultra-luxury One&Only Hayman Island.
“Hamilton Island, and the wider Whitsunday region, is a fantastic holiday destination and we’re very excited to be giving our customers a direct premium service from Brisbane.”
The Qantas Group offers 40 return services a week to Hamilton Island from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Cairns.
