Qantas commences daily schedule to South Africa

19th October 2010 Print

Qantas has commenced its daily schedule to South Africa as it introduced its seventh weekly service between Sydney and Johannesburg on Tuesdays.

Qantas Chief Executive Officer, Mr Alan Joyce, said that the commencement of the additional service provides Qantas customers with greater flexibility for travel between Australia and South Africa.

“South Africa is a key market for Qantas, particularly with our business travellers, and we are pleased that we can now offer customers a daily service between Sydney and Johannesburg,” Mr Joyce said.

“The new service will also be operated by a four class Boeing 747-400, adding an additional 350 seats per week to the route.

The daily schedule will now complement Qantas’ daily codeshare services between Perth and Johannesburg with South African Airways, who will also codeshare on Qantas’ daily Sydney-Johannesburg services.

Qantas continues to be the only carrier to operate non-stop services between Sydney and Johannesburg.

The new service will also deliver much needed additional freight opportunities for exporters throughout Australia and Asia on what is traditionally a sector limited by weight restrictions.
