Qantas has announced that it will return to Vancouver International Airport with an extended 2015 seasonal schedule, responding to the increased travel demand during the summer and winter months between Vancouver and Sydney, Australia.
After the success of its first six direct return flights in January, Qantas made the decision to resume service for the busy summer and winter holidays, said a statement from YVR. The direct service proved to be popular with both Australian and Canadian passengers and this upcoming schedule will offer more choice with an increase in services from two to three flights per week.
Qantas will operate 33 return services between Sydney and Vancouver - 13 return services in June/July, and 20 return services from mid-December to late January 2016, operated by a three-cabin, 364-seat refurbished Boeing 747 aircraft.
From June 20 to July 18, 2015, flights will depart from Sydney on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 5:05 p.m. arriving at 2 p.m. Flights will leave Vancouver on the same days at 9:30 p.m. and arrive in Sydney at 6:05 a.m. (+2 days). The winter service will run from Dec. 12, 2015 to Jan. 25, 2016 and flights will depart from Sydney Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 7:05 p.m., arriving at 2 p.m. Flights will leave Vancouver on the same days at 8 p.m. and will arrive at 6:15 a.m. (+2 days).
