Qantas will make it even easier for customers to travel to Byron Bay and the New South Wales far north coast, with the launch of flights from Sydney to Ballina for the first time in 15 years.

 A daily return flight will commence from 29 March 2020 adding more than 36,000 seats on the route each year. 

Northern Rivers residents and business travellers flying to Sydney will benefit with the flights conveniently timed for same-day trips with a morning departure from Ballina and an evening return from Sydney.

The new flights add to Jetstar’s services to Ballina, with the low-cost carrier operating direct flights from Sydney and Melbourne.

Flights will be operated by a 50-seat Q300 aircraft and to celebrate the new route, Qantas is offering special fares of $115 one way between Ballina and Sydney, for travel from 29 March to 25 October 2020. Sale ends 11.59pm AEDT 23 January 2020.

Ballina is Qantas' 12th destination in NSW after Sydney, Albury, Armidale, Coffs Harbour, Dubbo, Lord Howe Island, Moree, Newcastle, Port Macquarie, Tamworth, and Wagga Wagga.
