In good news for travellers, Qantas is gradually increasing the frequency of flights between Bundaberg and Brisbane.
Currently operating a limited schedule with just one flight per day several days a week, online bookings show extra services starting from Monday, 12 October, flying every day except Saturday.
From 26 October there will be flights every day of the week and two or three on most days.
Looking ahead to December there are multiple flights every day except a single only on Saturday.
The move comes shortly after Alliance Airlines suspends Bundaberg services on 28 September.
QantasLink CEO John Gissing said Qantas will look to backfill capacity on regional routes, with flights added in line with demand and an easing of travel restrictions.
“As the national carrier, and the country’s largest regional airline, we have an important role to play in driving tourism and helping the industry get back on its feet,” Mr Gissing said.
“We also know how important air travel is for regional communities, for residents and business travellers.
“We’re pleased to be able to support customers with ongoing connectivity where there is demand.”
