Qantas today announced it will operate six direct return flights between Sydney, Australia and Vancouver in January 2015. The flights will take advantage of the seasonal peak in travel during the Canadian winter.
“We are delighted that Qantas is looking at our North American market and giving passengers a great product and experience along this route,” said Craig Richmond, President and CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “This supplementary product will boost tourism and business and provide more choice for Canadians looking to escape the winter chill for some much needed sun and to Australians who want to make the most of our great ski resorts.”
Qantas will operate flights from January 3, 2015 to January 22, 2015 with a Boeing 747. Flights will depart from Sydney on Saturdays and Wednesdays at 14:30 arriving at 09:45. Flights will leave Vancouver on Sundays and Thursdays at 23:45 and arrive at 10:25 (+2days).
Qantas recently announced a codeshare with West Jet, providing new connections from their trans-Pacific services to an expanded network across Canada. For more information including how to purchase tickets, visit www.qantas.com.au.
