Through Flight Information

What is a Through Flight?

A through flight is a direct flight between two points with no change in flight number. It may or may not include a stop at an intermediate point.

For example:
QF1 is booked as one flight number from SYD to LHR and has a stop at an intermediate point. The stop will be in SIN.

 

Which Qantas Flights have a Stop at an Intermediate Point?

The following Qantas flights are through flights with a stop at an intermediate point:

  • QF1/2 SYD to LHR via SIN as the intermediate point and vice versa
  • QF9/10 MEL to LHR via PER as the intermediate point and vice versa
  • QF11/12 SYD to JFK via LAX as the intermediate point and vice versa

 

How do I Book a Through Flight?

Through flights need to be booked from origin to destination as one flight number. Flights are not permitted to be split into two segments, unless your customer would like to have a stopover (24 hours or more) at an intermediate point.

Flights that are booked incorrectly may be cancelled without warning or result in an Agent Debit Memo (ADM).
