  • Qantas launched year-round flights between Adelaide (ADL) and Kingscote (KGC) on Kangaroo Island on 4 December. This 124-kilometre domestic service is operated by QantasLink’s 50-seat Q300s, beginning three times per week year-round and increasing to five times weekly over the peak summer season through to Easter. Regional Express also flies on the airport pair, with an 18 times weekly service. Qantas also intends to start a service from Melbourne to Kangaroo Island later this month.
