Qantas Airways recently launched a new route from Bengaluru to Sydney cutting off nearly three hours from the current fastest travel time, boosting connectivity.
Story so far: The introduction of this new route by Qantas has made it possible for people living in South and Central India to reach Sydney on a non-stop flight. This is the only airline that offers direct flights to Australia.
- The CEO of Qantas Domestic and International pointed out that this development will also boost tourism and economic opportunities between Australia and India.
- Chief Strategist and Development Officer at Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL) stated that this is a historic moment for BLR airport.
Strong demand: Ever since the announcement of the new service, Qantas flights have been in high demand, with both inbound and outbound inaugural flights sold out in all cabins. The direct flight from Delhi to Australia launched last year was also very successful.
