Qantas ups flights to Hong Kong and Manila

9 Sep 2015 by GrahamSmith

Qantas has announced it will add extra frequencies from Sydney to both Hong Kong and Manila this winter.

From October 26, the Australian carrier will operate a further four weekly flights between Sydney and Hong Kong, making the route an 11-times weekly A330 service.

The airline currently flies to Hong Kong daily from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

How the timetable will look

Qantas International CEO Gareth Evans said: "Customers travelling from Sydney will have the choice of double daily flights to Hong Kong on peak days of the week for business travel and we'll look at expanding beyond that if the opportunity is available."

Qantas will also increase its four-times weekly Sydney-Manila service to five-times weekly between December 6 and March 20, stopping just before the start of the summer season.

The new frequency will operate on Sundays, subject to regulatory approval. It will join the current four services, which fly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Last month, Qantas ordered eight B787-9s to replace five of its ageing B747s on international routes (see news, August 20).
