Qantas to expand its network from Australia's capital with three new routes commencing in the next month from Canberra.

The pramier Australian airline, Qantas has confirmed its plans for a major expansion of its network from the nation’s capital with three new routes commencing in the next month from Canberra.

Details of the three new routes are:

Canberra-Sunshine Coast will operate three times a week and start on Thursday 19 November
Canberra-Cairns will operate twice a week and starts on Saturday 21 November
Canberra-Hobart will operate three times a week and starts on Friday 4 December

The flights will be operated by QantasLink’s dual class Boeing 717s featuring 12 seats in Business and 98 seats in Economy. The new routes follow on from the recent successful launch of Canberra-Gold Coast flights, the reinstatement of flights to Perth and additional services to Brisbane.

Since state and territory border restrictions eased in September, Qantas has announced nine new routes across Australia.

Comments – to be attributed to Qantas Domestic & International CEO Andrew David

“With international borders still closed, Australians are more inspired than ever to explore places in their own backyard.

“We’ve taken a fresh look at our network, creating new direct services, which were previously only available by connecting via another city, saving customers up to two hours travel time.

“These flights are great news for travellers who will now have more direct flights between Canberra and Cairns, Noosa and Hobart. It will also mean we can get more of our people back to work.”

Qantas is launching a three-day sale with special fares:

Canberra-Cairns from $199 one-way
Canberra-Sunshine Coast from $169 one-way
Canberra-Hobart from $159 one-way
Selected travel dates apply.
