Qantas expands domestic network

Qantas has announced it will offer a twice-weekly
Kalgoorlie-Adelaide service from 1 March 2009. Qantas Regional General Manager Western Australia, Mr Ian Gay, said Qantas was pleased to be
able to commence east-west flying from the regional centre of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.“The new Kalgoorlie-Adelaide service will not only provide the mining, business and tourism sectors
with the opportunity to travel between Kalgoorlie and Adelaide, but will enable people to utilise
Adelaide as a convenient connection point to Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane.
“These services will operate on Sundays and Tuesdays, offering a total of 460 seats on the route
each week. They will depart Kalgoorlie at 12:20pm arriving into Adelaide at 4pm. The return service
is also conveniently timed with an Adelaide departure of 4:45pm arriving into Kalgoorlie at 5:40pm.”
Mr Gay said Qantas would also increase its Kalgoorlie-Perth services from 21 services to 24 services
each week from 26 February 2009.
“This revised schedule will include, for the first time, an early morning departure from Kalgoorlie at
6:15am Monday to Wednesday. We will overnight an aircraft in Kalgoorlie to achieve this, which will
result in an arrival time in Perth of 7:20am. This will ensure that customers who wish to start their
business day in Perth by 8:30am are able to do so,” Mr Gay said.
