Jetstar links Brisbane and Australia’s Red Centre

    Jetstar announced (11-Apr-2018) plans to launch Brisbane-Uluru (Ayers Rock Airport) from 03-Aug-2018, operating three times weekly. The carrier will offer 56,000 seats p/a on the route annually. Jetstar executive manager Alan McIntyre, said the airline expects strong demand from Queenslanders wanting to visit the centre of Australia, as Uluru is “one of the most iconic destinations in Australia”. Jetstar already operates direct flights from Melbourne and Sydney to Uluru. The additional flights from Brisbane will see the carrier offering up to 257,000 seats to and from Uluru p/a.  Brisbane Airport Corporation CEO Julieanne Alroe commented  on the new routes, stating: “New services do not appear like magic and it takes a lot of time and negotiations to ensure a route is viable and sustainable”. Ms Alroe added: “This is why it’s important to work together and to celebrate each new service, as every additional flight brings with it a raft of benefits for the city and state, as well as Australia‘s regional centres”.
