New Flights Between Australia and South America

August 17, 2011 § 1 Comment

Qantas Airlines announced yesterday in early 2012 Qantas will
begin a new service to Santiago, Chile. The new route is part of Qantas groups
five-year plan to create a modern, customer-focused and competitive global
airline.

The new South America route will operate three times per week using
a three-class Boeing 747 reconfigured with Airbus A380 product, and replace
Qantas’ current direct flights between Sydney and Buenos Aires. Over time
Qantas looks to increase the service to daily flights. Flying time from Sydney
to Santiago is 13 hours and flying time from Santiago to Sydney is 14 hours 25
minutes.

Qantas is a member of the oneworld alliance and the new service
dovetails with oneworld alliance partner LAN whose hub is in Santiago. Arriving
in Santiago travelers can make easy connections throughout the region including
flights to the Galapagos Islands and Cusco, Peru  the gateway to Machu Picchu.
