QantasLink launched a new five times weekly service between Adelaide and Mount Gambier on 28 March 2021. The flight is operated by the airline’s 50-seat Q300 turboprop aircraft.

Rodney Harrex, Chief Executive, South Australian Tourism Commission; John Gissing, CEO QantasLink; and Mark Young, Managing Director, Adelaide Airport, cut the cake to commemorate the launch of QantasLink’s new five times weekly service between Adelaide and Mount Gambier. Competition comes from REX, which operates the route 15 times weekly.

“Travellers will have more choice and greater flexibility when flying to our State’s second-biggest city,” says Mark Young, Managing Director, Adelaide Airport. “Mount Gambier is a vital economic centre and an ideal base for visitors experiencing the picturesque South East and Limestone Coast regions. The new service will further lift the profile of one our State’s premier destinations. Sitting in the heart of the popular Limestone Coast region, Mount Gambier is a great base for trips to Robe, Penola and the Coonawarra wine region. The city itself has wonderful attractions such as the Blue Lake, Umpherston Sinkhole and the crystal-clear Piccaninnie Ponds. Our regional links provide vital business, tourism and freight links to our cities and towns. Many of our exporters benefit from these flights to enhance same-day international connections so their fresh produce and aquaculture can quickly reach markets across Asia.”

Rodney Harrex, Chief Executive, South Australian Tourism Commission, comments: “These additional flights are going to be a great boost for local businesses in the South East, and further drive visitation to the Limestone Coast from Adelaide.”
