Qantas today announced that its popular Cityflyer service would head to Canberra from 3 February, offering 24 flights each week day between Sydney and the nation's capital.

Qantas Executive General Manager Sales and Marketing John Borghetti said Cityflyer, which already operated on Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth routes, had established itself as the best business travel service in Australia.

"It is ideally suited to our business customers, streamlining the airport process with dedicated check-in, service desks, departure gates and baggage carousels, and offering extra benefits such as complimentary newspapers on weekdays, and complimentary beer and wine on services after 4pm," he said.

Mr Borghetti said the Canberra service would operate at least every half-hour in peak business travel periods.

"We are also on track to introduce QuickCheck, our self-service check-in kiosks, to Canberra next month.

"We are working closely with Canberra International Airport to significantly upgrade existing facilities including the Qantas Club and check-in area, improve baggage reclaim facilities, and provide new carpet and refurbished seating," he said.

Does it mean that they will standardize on one aircraft type for the route - at the moment they operate Qantaslink DHC8s and 145s alongside mainline 737s. Or is it just rebranding the existing operation and adding quick check-in ?

I wonder if it's worth to do so. I've been to CBR once, and the airport is absolutely quiet even there were 3 flights departing within 30 minutes (QF, DJ and Rex). However I did wait for 5 minute for the check-in, the ground crews were chatting with each others.. Sad

Anyway, I appreciate the work of QF to introduce something new to the airports  Smile
