QF to begin Adelaide-Kalgoorlie Services

Postby Stefan J Perkas » Thu Nov 20, 2008 7:38 pm

Qantas announced today it would offer a twice-weekly Kalgoorlie-
Adelaide service from 1 March 2009.

Qantas Regional General Manager Western Australia, Mr Ian Gay, said
Qantas was pleased to be able to commence east-west flying from the
regional centre of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

"The new Kalgoorlie-Adelaide service will not only provide the mining,
business and tourism sectors with the opportunity to travel between
Kalgoorlie and Adelaide, but will enable people to utilise Adelaide as
a convenient connection point to Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and
Brisbane.

"These services will operate on Sundays and Tuesdays, offering a total
of 460 seats on the route each week. They will depart Kalgoorlie at
12:20pm arriving into Adelaide at 4pm. The return service is also
conveniently timed with an Adelaide departure of 4:45pm arriving into
Kalgoorlie at 5:40pm."

The new Kalgoorlie-Adelaide service is on sale between 21-27 November
2008 for $179 one-way, for travel between 1 March - 30 June 2009.

These flights will be operated by 717's and the flight no. will be QF1879 ADL-KGI and from KGI-ADL it will be QF1878.

Evening all,

After 5 years of services, Qantas wil axe the twice weekly B717 between Kalgoorlie- Adelaide service.

The airline has cancelled two flights between Adelaide and Kalgoorlie, citing poor tickets sales.

Qantas says customers will have to fly to the east coast, via Perth.

Mayor Ron Yuryevich says he is extremely disappointed that the resource downturn has had a knock-on effect to flights.

He says Kalgoorlie has been fortunate that the airport has had record business.

"We'd all love to see that keep going but reality is there has to be a correction every now and then," he said.

"We've had that last year and this year. There are less flights, there are less people coming through our airport, about 15 per cent less at the last count roughly.

"We did a survey last year or 18 months ago where we surveyed the people coming in on the eastern states flights and the majority by far, 80-odd per cent, were business people and mining-related, so obviously that has to have a knock-on effect."

All direct flights between Karratha and cities on the east coast were also cancelled.

The Shire of Roebourne's Chris Adams says he hopes the decision is temporary.

"I guess we're disappointed that Qantas has axed the eastern states flights from Karratha but it's not the end of the world for the Karratha airport," he said.

"The flights make up less than 2 per cent of the total patronage of the airport, so it's not a major blow in terms of the future of the airport whatsoever."
