Qantas publishes supplementary services over the holiday period

Qantas has today published 11 return supplementary services to operate between Australia and New Zealand to cater for strong demand over the peak summer holiday period.

This follows recent changes to Qantas’ trans-Tasman schedule, designed to deliver a better mix of premium and budget services to customers on both sides of the Tasman and to better reflect seasonal peaks. Qantas has moved to a more dynamic scheduling across low season, shoulder periods and peak seasons on the Tasman. This has seen Qantas take advantage of seasonal opportunities, like the Perth to Auckland service which will continue again this summer from 5 December 2014 through to 26 April 2015.

The services will be operated by B737 aircraft between 17 and 27 December 2014.

• 5 supplementary return Sydney-Auckland services (QF180/189);
• 2 supplementary return Melbourne-Auckland services (QF157/158);
• 1 supplementary return Brisbane-Auckland service (QF119/120);
• 3 supplementary return Sydney-Christchurch services (QF136/137).

Qantas will also upgrade two return Sydney-Auckland services (QF143/146) on 20 and 26 December 2014 from a B737 to an A330 aircraft.
