QantasLink Starts Brisbane to Hamilton Island Airport Services on Friday with Dash-8-Q400 Next Gen VH-LQM

Early last month, we reported that Qantas Airways, via their regional subsidiary QantasLink, would start direct flights between Brisbane and Hamilton Island.  Well this new service started as planned on Friday 28 November, with QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 Next Gen VH-LQM operating the first QLK2824/2825 return service from Brisbane to Hamilton Island and back.

These 74-seat QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 aircraft will be operating four return services per week – on Fridays, Saturdays, Sunday and Mondays.

QantasLink has long serviced Hamilton Island with daily return flights from Cairns in Far North Queensland.  It believes the launch of these new services gives customers more travel options on its expanding network and is great news for Whitsunday tourism.

Hamilton Island is delighted that QantasLink is starting a direct service from Brisbane.  Having celebrated the return of Qantas to the Island in July, the Island is delighted to welcome the additional QantasLink Brisbane to Hamilton Island service to compliment the current Qantas (mainline) operated Sydney to Hamilton Island route.

The Qantas Group (including Jetstar) offers 40 return services a week to Hamilton Island from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Cairns.

We wish QantasLink all the best for these new services!
