Snowfield gateway opens to Adelaide this winter with new Qantas route set to take off

Latest News|Published 20 April 2022

South Australians will have a direct connection to the Victorian snowfields this winter as Qantas launches a new seasonal route between Adelaide and Albury-Wodonga, the gateway to Falls Creek and Hotham resorts.

From 8 July to 25 September 2022, the national carrier will operate two weekly return flights between Adelaide and Albury with its 50-seat Q300 aircraft.  

The new service will be the only direct connection between South Australia and Albury, saving travellers more than three hours on a return flight compared to alternative flight options via Sydney or Melbourne.  

The new route will mean that Albury has direct connections to four capital cities with Qantas for the first time – Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.  

Qantas will also increase return services between Albury and Brisbane from 7 to 10 each week, in response to strong demand on the route since Queensland’s border reopened late last year. 

Qantas is offering special fares on the new route starting from $179 Economy one way, available for sale until 11.59pm AEST 22 April 2022, unless sold out prior. 

Customers will enjoy the benefits of Qantas’ premium service, including complimentary food and drinks, baggage and lounge access in Adelaide before they fly out. Ski and snowboard equipment can be included as part of the checked baggage allowance.
