Qantas adds three new routes for the Australian ski season

Qantas is making it easier for travellers to access the snowfields this winter with the launch of three new seasonal routes, supporting the growing demand for holidays within Australia.

From 1 July to 26 September 2021, the national carrier will operate three new routes to Cooma and Albury, the gateways to the snowfields in New South Wales and Victoria:

  • Sydney to Cooma – flights will operate three days per week.
  • Brisbane to Cooma – flights will operate two days per week.
  • Brisbane to Albury – flights will operate three days per week.

From Cooma, customers can access the popular resorts of Perisher Valley, Thredbo and Charlotte Pass in New South Wales. From Albury, customers can access Falls Creek and Hotham resorts in Victoria.

All flights will be operated by QantasLink’s turboprop Q400 aircraft, offering more than 15,000 seats on the routes through winter.

Flights from Sydney to Cooma are timed to allow travellers to depart after work on a Thursday or Friday and return Sunday evening, which enables them to enjoy a long weekend of skiing without needing to drive. The flights from Brisbane will also offer Queenslanders the only direct airline connection to the snowfields this season.

Cost of flights

Fares for flights between Sydney and Cooma are available from $179 one-way and flights from Brisbane to Cooma and Albury are available from $239. Qantas Frequent Flyers can book reward seats from Sydney to Cooma for 8,000 Qantas Points one-way and from Brisbane to Cooma and Albury for 12,000 Qantas Points one-way (excl taxes/fees).

Customers will enjoy the benefits of Qantas’ premium service, including complimentary food and drinks, baggage and lounge access before they fly out. Importantly, ski and snowboard equipment can be included as part of the checked baggage allowance.

Qantas continues to offer unlimited flight changes

To help offset some of the uncertainty on borders, Qantas is offering unlimited flight changes through to at least February 2022, for flights booked until at least the end of April 2021. The flight date can be changed to any available for sale at the time (up to 355 days in advance). Qantas will waive the change fee however a fare difference may apply.
