Flights between Adelaide and Newcastle to take off

Latest News|Published 5 November 2021

QantasLink will connect some of Australia’s premier wine regions with the addition of direct flights between Adelaide and Newcastle from early next year

Leisure and business travellers will be able to take advantage of the new service with QantasLink operating three weekly return services with the Embraer E190 regional jet aircraft commencing on 28 March 2022.

The E190s were introduced to QantasLink’s network in May as part of the airline’s agreement with Alliance Airlines. With its size, range and economics, the dual-class 94-seat jet has opened up a number of new routes that wouldn’t have been viable with Qantas’ existing fleet.

The new service will be the only direct connection between Newcastle and Adelaide, saving more than two hours each way compared to flying via Sydney.

Qantas customers and frequent flyers will be able to enjoy our premium service on these new flights, whether its complimentary food and drinks, baggage or access to our Adelaide lounge.

The new routes have been made possible with the support of Adelaide Airport, Newcastle Airport, Destination NSW and the South Australian Tourism Commission.

Qantas is offering special fares starting from $149 one way, available for sale until 11.59pm AEDT 7 November 2021, unless sold out prior.
