BY A CORRESPONDENT

Sydney, 11 May 2005: Qantas today announced an additional 11 domestic flights for Western Australia.

From July, Qantas will add five extra Perth-Brisbane services, three additional Perth-Melbourne flights, a third Perth-Cairns service and a second seasonal Broome-Sydney service.

A second seasonal Perth-Kununurra service operated by QantasLink will be added from 18 May.

Qantas Head of Sales and Marketing Rob Gurney said the new services represented a significant increase in capacity for WA.

"There will be an additional 1,700 seats in each direction each week, providing more opportunities for travel to and from Western Australia and catering for expected seasonal demand for holiday destinations in the north," Mr Gurney said.

"We currently operate 41 services each week between Perth and Melbourne which will increase to 44 with three more non-stop flights from 14 July.

"Perth-Brisbane services will increase to 20 with the addition of five weekly services between the cities from 1 July and a third Perth-Cairns service commences on 6 July.

"The second seasonal service between Broome and Sydney will operate on Wednesdays, from 6 July and complement the Saturday service."

Mr Gurney said a second Perth-Kununurra flight would be added on Wednesdays between 18 May and 12 October in response to demand.

"The seasonal Kununurra flights were extremely popular last year, so for a second year QantasLink will introduce a second weekly service," he said.

"This service will depart Perth at 11.05am on Wednesdays arriving in Kununurra at 2.25pm with the return service at 3.05pm, arriving into Perth at 7.35pm after flying via Newman."

The Qantas Group currently operates more than 260 WA domestic services each week to 16 destinations.
