Qantas will return to Vancouver with an extended seasonal schedule, providing customers with new travel options over the North American summer and winter holiday seasons. Qantas Executive Manager International Sales, Stephen Thompson, said the decision to return to Vancouver came at the end of a successful first season of flying during the December-January travel period.
“This is great news for customers planning their next international holiday, this time catering not only for Australian ski enthusiasts, but also for those wanting to explore Canada in summer.”
“Vancouver has something to offer every type of traveler in the warmer months. It’s both a cosmopolitan harbour city and the gateway to the Canadian Rockies. Our customers can also enjoy seamless connections to six destinations across Canada with our codeshare partner WestJet.
“Our focus with this new schedule is to give customers more choice. We’ve increased services from two to three per week, and will ensure customers can maximise their holiday time with night flights in both directions”.
Qantas will operate 33 return services between Sydney and Vancouver - 13 return services in June/July, and 20 return services from mid-December to late January 2016, operated by a three-cabin, 364-seat refurbished B747 aircraft.
