Network changes From late October, Qantas will launch a new route between Broome and Darwin operated by QantasLink’s 100-seat Fokker F100*. Flights will operate non-stop three days per week and provide a new direct option for corporate travelers as well as providing connections for domestic and international travelers. The new route has been made possible with the introduction of F100 aircraft on flights between Darwin and Alice Springs* while maintaining a double daily frequency for the majority of the year to better match existing and forecasted demand on the route.
The larger Boeing 737 aircraft which has operated on the route for the past two months has proven to be bigger than needed. The F100 is closer in size to the Boeing 717 which operated on the route until recently. Qantas Domestic CEO Andrew David said the F100 will commence Broome-Darwin and Darwin-Alice Springs flights from 27 October 2019.
“This Broome route is the fourth new route the Qantas Group has launched in the Territory in the past year – Qantas launched two new routes to Uluru from Darwin and Adelaide in March and Jetstar launched Brisbane to Uluru in August last year,” Mr David said.
To celebrate the launch of Broome-Darwin, Qantas is offering special fares of $199 one-way for travel between 27 October 2019 to 27 March 2020 for sale until 24 June 2019.
