Australian airline Qantas has launched, as we speak, an entirely new route from Bengaluru (BLR) to Sydney (SYD), providing Basic direct connection between South India and Australia by any airline.

The QF68 will reduce nearly three hours of the currently fastest flight time between the two cities and significantly enhance connectivity between India and New South Wales. With the all-new service announced earlier this year, the route has seen strong demand, with both inaugural and outgoing rides served in all compartments. The brand's new providers will offer new alternatives to tourism in Bengaluru and India, with a direct gateway for Australian vacationers to the experts itself, all that India supplied it. For the people of Bengaluru and southern India, it is a handy continuous flight to Sydney for a dream vacation or to go with family and friends.

Andrew David, CEO of Qantas Home and CEO of Worldwide, stated that the flights would enhance tourism, financial and alternative ties between Australia and India.

“Adding Bengaluru to our roadmap deepens our ties with India and tracks the launch of direct service providers from Australia to Delhi in the final year which confirmed the standard further. Qantas is now the only airline to offer direct flights between Australia's two largest cities and northern and southern India.”

Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL), Head of Technology and Growth, Satyaki Rajunath stated that the start of the brand new Qantas Bengaluru-Sydney route was a historic second for BLR.

“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Qantas Airways Australia to BLR Airport. This could be a historic event which is thought to be the first ever continuous service connecting southern and central India with Australia. Flights will reduce flight time compared to current options and can make entry into Australia and past factors, along with New Zealand and the Pacific Islands simple, particularly for leisure travelers, businesses, sports enthusiasts and college students who go there for further research.

“This connection is more specific because it is the eighth

one global service to start operations from BLR Airport. In addition, the addition of this flight puts the main objective back on BLR Airport's dedication to offering new routes and alternatives for tourism and trade between South India and Australia.”

Qantas recently launched the core division of its codeshare partnership with IndiGo. There are currently 11 locations where Qantas prospects can pin on IndiGo to and from Bengaluru, along with Mumbai, Goa, Kolkata and Chennai. The roll-out of the codeshare will begin over the coming months, expanding access and making it easier for Qantas prospects in India to connect with new direct flights to Sydney.

Qantas will fly the A330 from Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru to Sydney 4 times a week on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
