Qantas has announced that it will be running an additional 21 extra flights across the Tasman between Brisbane/Sydney and Auckland in July. The extra flights are said to have been added in order to meet the demand of the school holidays period.
In total, there will be six additional return services between Sydney and Auckland. On top of that there is an additional one way service between the two cities. The additional four return services are running between Brisbane and Sydney.
The additional services between Sydney and Auckland will operate between July 3 and 19. The flights (QF181/180), will operate at different times depending on the day of the week.
The four additiional Brisbane services over the period will be the QF119/120 operating on July 4, 11, 12, 13 and 18.
All of the additional services will be operated by the 737-800 aircraft that Qantas uses for its Trans Tasman services. These services are configured with both business and economy cabins.
These additional services are part of the Qantas strategy of running a more dynamic schedule, where they increase flights when there’s demand and reduce the number of flights during quieter periods.
