QANTAS to launch seasonal nonstop flights from Melbourne to Queenstown


QANTAS Airways will launch new seasonal flights direct from Melbourne to Queenstown to meet the growing number of Australians seeking winter holidays in New Zealand over the peak ski season*.

Between June 21 and August 27, 2019, QANTAS will operate three services per week between Melbourne and Queenstown with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, offering more than 10,000 seats on the route over the winter peak.

These new flights are in addition to the QANTAS Group’s 33 existing Queenstown services available each week throughout winter, with QANTAS’ flights operating from Sydney and Brisbane and Jetstar’s flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Gold Coast.

The flights – which will operate on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays – have been made possible by reducing Qantas’ Melbourne-Christchurch schedule to four services per week over the winter when demand is lower.
