Qantas and Jetstar to boost flights between Brisbane and Launceston

Latest News|Published 10 September 2021

Queenslanders will find it easier to visit northern Tasmania with Qantas launching its first direct flights from Brisbane to Launceston.  

From 1 November 2021, the national carrier will operate three return services per week with QantasLink’s Boeing 717 aircraft until the end of March 2022, offering more than 15,000 additional seats on the route. The airline will look to add more flights beyond this date if there is demand.

From November, Jetstar will also add an additional two weekly return services to its existing Brisbane to Launceston flights offering a total of 9 return flights each week with its Airbus A320 aircraft.

This is the eighth new Tasmanian route Qantas and Jetstar have launched since international borders closed, in response to demand from Australians looking for domestic holidays.

Qantas is offering special Economy fares starting from $169 one way, available for sale until 11.59pm AEST 12 September 2021, unless sold out prior. Terms and conditions apply. 

Qantas’ Fly Flexible policy offers customers who book flights for travel before 28 February 2022 added flexibility with unlimited fee free date changes. A fare difference may apply.
