Qantas launches scenic flights with a trip to Uluru

Fancy a champagne breakfast, low-level flybys of Sydney Harbour and a luxurious stay at Uluru's Sails in the Desert?

Qantas will operate a series of scenic getaway flights landing at some of Australia’s key holiday destinations following the success of its recent 7-hour aerial tourism flight while many border restrictions were still in place.

As more domestic borders open, the national carrier will evolve the scenic flight concept to offer an overnight getaway to some of the most iconic Australian spots while still including spectacular low-level flybys.

The first of the Scenic Flight Getaways will take 110 passengers on board a Qantas 737 from Sydney to Uluru to experience one of the country’s most culturally significant sites.

Qantas Group Chief Executive Alan Joyce said there has never been a better time to be innovative in promoting our own backyard and supporting hard hit tourism operators.

The first Scenic Flight Getaway will take off to Uluru on Saturday 5 December. The overnight outing will include a pre-flight lounge champagne breakfast, a flight to Uluru including low level flybys of Sydney Harbour on departure and low level circuits to offer passengers a bird’s eye view of Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

Qantas will partner with Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia to provide guests with a memorable Red Centre experience staying at Ayers Rock Resort’s premier hotel, Sails in the Desert.

During their stay guests will enjoy a hands-on Indigenous art workshop, a Night at Field of Light including a three-course dinner under the stars using native ingredients, with a didgeridoo performance and an Indigenous interpretation of the night sky.

The following morning, passengers will watch sunrise over Uluru and a guided walk to the Muṯitjulu Waterhole as well as a visit to neighbouring Kata Tjuta before a late morning brunch and a flight back to Sydney for a final harbour flyby before landing.
