QantasLink has released reduced airfares between Gladstone and Brisbane. One-way fares are now on sale until Monday 21 February for $65 per person. They are valid for travel from 26 March 2011 to 8 May 2011. This comes after QantasLink also announced plans to build a new 'Regional Lounge' at Gladstone Airport.
The lounge will reflect the same style as Qantas Club lounges across Australia and offer Qantas Club members and Platinum and Gold Frequent Flyers a range of services including wireless internet, pay TV, and a selection of food and drinks.
Two Qantas Regional Lounges are already available in Queensland at Mackay and Rockhampton, with a new lounge also planned for Emerald in the coming months.
These announcements appear to be a direct response by QantasLink to the news this week that Strategic Airlines will commence services between Brisbane and Gladstone. Stategic is offering introductory fares from $59 per person for travel from April 18 2011.
