Hamilton Island welcomes the return of Qantas services from Sydney

March 24, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Hamilton Island welcomes the return of Qantas services from Sydney direct to the Island, following a 10-year absence.

Starting from July 2, the revived route, flying three times a week during peak season, will address the growing demand among domestic travellers from NSW looking to visit the popular holiday destination. In addition, international Qantas travellers will benefit from a seamless travel experience to the Island.

Phillipa Harrison, Hamilton Island’s General Manager Sales, said: ‘We are thrilled Qantas will once again be servicing Hamilton Island from Sydney. The Island has a strong Sydney guest base and we’re pleased these guests will now have additional flight options and increased accessibility to the beauty and attractions of Hamilton Island, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.

‘The timing of this news has been impeccable, as the Island’s events calendar is soon to ramp up with Audi Hamilton Island Race Week in August, the Australian Ballet pas de deux in paradise in October and The Great Barrier Feast in November.’

Further enhancing Hamilton Island’s world-class offering as a regular host to big scale social events as well as corporate events, Qantas’ Sydney to Hamilton Island service will also include business fares, starting from $569 one way.

‘As Australia’s premier island destination, we cater to a broad range of guests through our wide range of high-quality properties. From our award-winning luxury accommodation qualia and 4-bedroom Yacht Club Villas with Executive Concierge  through to our affordable Palm Bungalows, the return of Qantas’ economy and business class fares not only delivers our guests greater convenience but also value-for-money.’

Economy fares will start from $139 one-way, and can be booked directly through Hamilton Island or Qantas,’ continued Ms. Harrison.

The re-entry of Qantas will see the Island serviced by three different carriers – Qantas along with its sister airline Jetsar, and Virgin Australia.
