QANTAS Link to launch flights from Brisbane to the Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine)

QANTAS Airways has made this announcement:

Queenslanders will have more travel options to the world-famous Whitsundays with QANTAS Link launching direct flights from Brisbane to the Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) for the first time in seven years.

From September 17, 2021, QANTAS Link will operate up to seven weekly return flights between Proserpine and Brisbane with its 74-seat Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft, adding more than 1000 seats on the route each week.

It follows the new routes QANTAS Link commenced from Brisbane to Albury and Cooma earlier this week. Between QANTAS, QANTAS Link and Jetstar, the Group has now launched more than 45 new routes since international borders closed, around half of which are into Queensland.

QantasLink CEO John Gissing said the new route would create stronger connections to the popular tourism destination.

The new Brisbane-Proserpine service will complement Jetstar flights to the Whitsunday Coast from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
