QantasLink trims its schedule

FOURTEEN flights per week have been cut from Qantas flight service QantasLink in Rockhampton as part of its December-January schedule.

A spokeswoman for Qantas said the company experienced a large drop in demand over the Christmas and January period due to a reduction in business travel.

She said QantasLink operated an average base schedule of 143 return services each week from Rockhampton, which includes 38 weekly return flights between Rockhampton and Brisbane, 19 weekly return flights on the Rockhampton-Gladstone-Brisbane route and 14 weekly return flights on the Rockhampton-Mackay-Townsville-Cairns route.

The spokeswoman said the reduction of 14 flights per week between December 25 and January 29 only affected flights between Rockhampton and Brisbane, as this was the service that was reliant on government and corporate business travel.

“Each year, we announce this December-January schedule rationalisation ahead of time to our customers. This year the new schedule was announced on 24th September 2009. This is something that all regional airlines do.”
