Hi People,

Just heard a rumour that ANsett will start to fly from Australia to Africa. Can anyone confirm that ?

I would doubt it though this may refer to a codeshare with SAA. Ansett only has its 2 744s that would be able to cover the long overwater trip from Perth to Sth Africa and both these planes are flat out flying to Hong Kong and Osaka. If Ansett were looking to expand their international routes I would guess HNL or LAX would be higher on their list.

I agree with Tullamarine. Right now Ansett doesn't have the equipment. They are running VH-ANA and VH-ANB very hard on flights to Hong Kong and Osaka. I wonder how many hours those two airframes gain a month? Unless SIA gives them some more 747-400s their can't be any expansion.

MAN!!!!!! if Ansett fly to africa I would be the first person to use them

I am sooooo sick of having to take Qantas or SAA (which isnt as bad as QF)..... that i have to go thru Singapore or Malaysia to get any decent service, or inflight entertainment!

Thats great news if they are going to expand, only if they get more 747-400's or 777's from Singapore Airlines.

SpUd is correct in stating that there will be changes in Ansett Australia, and very soon at that...

Ansett will now only fly to destinations that can make a profit straight up! I can tell you that the next destination for Ansett Intl. will be LAX (ex Syd) & they also want up to 5 weekly flights from Mel to Hong Kong.
They are a frequent flyer partner currently with SAA, their relationship maybe broadened to include code sharing in the future. Ansett also have a new owner in Air NZ & they will want a say in how Ansett Intl is run. Ansett's main problem currently is that it cannot get aircraft (ex SIA) fast enough. They are speaking with SIA about future aircraft requirements & that is all I can say at present.

Watch this space..............

Ansett Australia - (was) One of the worlds great airlines!
