Qantas has today announced Sydney-Santiago as the next route for its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
From late June 2020, passengers flying on this popular route will be able to experience the Qantas Dreamliner Economy, Premium Economy and Business cabins.
The change is part of the phased delivery of the national carrier’s six additional Dreamliners, as the more efficient aircraft gradually replace the Boeing 747 aircraft on Qantas’ international network by the end of 2020.
Subject to regulatory approval, Qantas is also adding an additional three return flights per week between the two cities. The additional flights will result in daily services, adding more than 20,000 seats each year.
It doesn’t appear that any additional award seats have been made available for booking as yet – so stay tuned.
Qantas currently has eight 787-9s in its fleet, with a further six arriving from October 2019, bringing the total fleet of Dreamliners to 14 in the second half of 2020.
