Qantas adds New Non-stop US Service from Brisbane and goes Double-Daily from Melbourne
Sydney, 13 October 2005
Qantas said today it would add a fifth non-stop service from Brisbane to Los Angeles from 28 January 2006.
The Executive General Manager of Qantas, Mr John Borghetti, said the introduction of non-stop flights last year between Brisbane and Los Angeles had been very successful.
"The latest capacity growth reflects the confidence that Qantas has in further growth in tourism and travel between the USA and Queensland."
Mr Borghetti said all Brisbane-Los Angeles services would be operated by two-class
Boeing 747 aircraft featuring the airline's award winning Skybed in Business Class.
He said further changes to Qantas' US schedules included moving from eight flights a
week on Melbourne-Los Angeles to a double-daily service - seven operating non-stop and
seven via Auckland.
Qantas services between Australia and mainland USA will increase to a record 39 a week from March 2006 when the airline commences new services to San Francisco.
