Qantas’ economics of regional Australia airfares and discount programme

    Qantas has extended its discount fare programme on airfares to/from regional airports in Australia. Recipients have access to discounts of at least 20% and up to 30% on return fares for travel from local airports to the nearest capital city or major town. Introduced as part of a 12 month trial in Dec-2017, the programme targets regional cities with a high proportion of corporate travel, specifically from the resources industry.

    As part of the programme, Qantas has shed light on the economics of a regional airfare via a new infographic:
