Australian airline Qantas has announced that it will increase the frequency of its direct flights on the Bengaluru-Sydney route from mid-December. The airline will increase the frequency from five flights a week at present to daily between the two cities.

The increase in flights is due to the expected strong demand during the peak holiday season.The extra flights will operate between mid-December 2024 and late March 2025, adding over 12,000 seats between the two cities over the four-month period.

Qantas had launched the Bengaluru-Sydney route in September 2022, giving the first direct connection between southern India and Australia by any airline. The airline, with the number QF68, cut nearly three hours off the then fastest travel time between the two cities and boosted connectivity between India and Australia.

The Service

Qantas flies the Airbus A330 aircraft on this route. Each flight has 27 Business Class suites in 1-2-1 configuration, with each suite featuring direct aisle access and converting into a lie-flat bed.

Qantas recently announced that the airline would accelerate a programme to introduce ‘fast and free’ wi-fi across its fleet of international aircraft, including the A330s, with enough bandwidth for every passenger to enjoy a fast and consistent connection. The service will be progressively rolled out on Qantas flights between India and Australia in 2025.
