Qantas: Qantas to start Delhi-Sydney flights from December 6


NEW DELHI: Australian carrier Qantas, after more than a decade, will launch non-stop services to India this winter. From December 6, Qantas will have a three-weekly service between Delhi and Sydney using its Airbus A330, which will become a daily newspaper by the end of the year. “Flights will initially operate until at least the end of March 2022, with a view to continuing if demand is sufficient.

The launch of this new route follows Australia’s decision to reopen its international borders from November 1, 2021, removing quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated arrivals in Sydney.

This will be the first time that Qantas has operated direct commercial flights between India and Australia since 2009. In the past 12 months, the airline has operated more than 50 repatriation flights from India on behalf of the Australian government. to bring Australians home.
Qantas says that while many aspects of international travel will be the same for customers as they were before COVID, some things will be a little different, especially in the short term. Passengers must be vaccinated with approved Covid vaccines, with the exception of children under 2 and medical exemptions.
