Flights to London and Los Angeles to be increased by Qantas

Qantas will increase its number of A380 flights to London and Los Angeles from Sydney later this summer.

Changes will be implemented on August 6th to coincide with the airline taking delivery of three new aircraft.

Rob Gurney, chief executive of Qantas’ commercial wing, said that the fourth A380 would arrive by the end of next month.

This will allow the carrier to increase its number of flights to London from three to five per week, while the Los Angeles service will increase from three to four per week.

"The arrival of our fifth and sixth aircraft later in the year will mean further increases in services to these key destinations," he commented.

"By November, Qantas will operate daily A380 services to London and Los Angeles from Sydney and will increase Melbourne-Los Angeles services from two to three A380 flights per week."

Mr Gurney added that, since Qantas launched A380 services in October last year, it had transported more than 200,000 passengers on the aircraft.

Australia’s flagship airline announced today (June 29th) that it intended to expand its European flights network further thanks to a codeshare agreement with Iberian.
