QantasLink to launch Melbourne-Wollongong flights


Australian regional carrier QantasLink is to launch services between Melbourne and Wollongong for the first time on June 6, according to Air Transport Intelligence.

The seven-times-a-week service will be operated with a Bombardier Dash 8 Q300.

All the flights will be operated on weekdays but a QantasLink spokeswoman said the carrier was hoping to build the route into a leisure operation as well as targeting business travellers.

Currently no airlines provide scheduled non-stop services on the route, according to the QantasLink spokeswoman.

Introductory fares for the new services start from $99 one-way plus surcharges, fees and taxes of $44.

Services from Melbourne will include morning flights on Mondays and Thursdays and an evening departure from Monday to Friday.
