QANTAS Link to launch direct flights from Wagga Wagga to the Sunshine State for the first time

QANTAS made this announcement:

Riverina travelers will have direct flights to Queensland when QantasLink starts flying between Wagga Wagga and Brisbane early next year.

The national carrier will operate three weekly return services with its 74 seat, Q400 turboprop aircraft from March 28, 2022, saving at least 90 minutes on current flying times via Sydney.

It will be the first regular passenger service to connect Wagga Wagga to Brisbane in almost four years and will give Riverina residents more one-stop connections to destinations across the airline’s expansive Queensland network.

The flights have been made possible with the support of the Queensland Government, Wagga Wagga Airport, and Brisbane Airport Corporation.
