Celebrating the launch of this route were, from left, Gareth Williamson, GM Aviation Business Development, Sunshine Coast Airport; Vynka Hutton, International Marketing Manager, Tourism Noosa; Elsa D’Alessio, Regional Manager, QLD & NT, Qantas; Andrew Brodie, CEO, Sunshine Coast Airport; and Andrew Fairbairn, Industry and Membership Development Manager, Visit Sunshine Coast.
QantasLink began Sunshine Coast to Canberra on 19 November, with this fantastic cake to celebrate its launch.
The carrier operates the 1,034-kilometre route three-weekly using 110-seat B717s.
Until this year, the airport had never had a non-stop link with Canberra. Previously, passengers either flew via Sydney or to Brisbane and then overland.
Now, Canberra – Sunny Coast has two carriers – QantasLink and Alliance – with a combined five-weekly service.
Alliance began the route in October, with its service routing Canberra to Cairns via Sunshine Coast.
All aboard! A great cake complete with a boarding pass. Please click on the image to enlarge it.
