Qantas and Jetstar increase Australian domestic flying as restrictions ease

Latest News|Published 4 June 2020

As travel restrictions start to ease across Australia, Qantas and Jetstar will increase their domestic and regional flying for June and July.

The additional services will see capacity increase from 5 per cent of pre-Coronavirus levels, to 15 per cent by the end of June. This equates to more than 300 more return flights per week.

Additional flights will likely operate during July depending on travel demand and further relaxation of state borders, with the ability to increase to up to 40 per cent of the Group’s pre-crisis domestic capacity by the end of July.

Customers with bookings made through Travel Agents or third-party websites will need to contact them directly.

As part of the Group’s ‘Fly Well’ program, Qantas and Jetstar will have a range of measures in place from 12 June 2020 for Australian domestic travel, to ensure a safe environment at airports and onboard aircraft and to give customers extra peace of mind.
