Qantas will operate six direct services between Sydney and Vancouver in January 2015, to cater for demand during the peak North American winter holiday season.

The new services will operate from 3 to 22 January 2015, departing Sydney on Saturdays and Wednesdays, and returning from Vancouver on Sundays and Thursdays. All flights will be operated using a three-cabin Boeing 747-400 aircraft with flat beds in business class.

“The schedule will appeal to customers wanting to maximise their vacation time on shorter getaways, with a morning arrival into Vancouver enabling same-day travel to ski resorts across Canada, and a late night departure on the return,” said Qantas International’s CEO, Simon Hickey.

“North America is a key market for Qantas and these direct services reinforce our commitment both to this market and to taking advantage of seasonal peaks, including to destinations that aren’t necessarily on our network all-year round,” he added.

The launch of the Vancouver services follows last week’s announcement of a new codeshare with WestJet, which will provide connections across Canada from Qantas’ trans-Pacific services to Honolulu and Los Angeles.

“Over our summer, we’ll operate additional services to Tokyo and Honolulu as well as the ones announced today to Vancouver. Since July, we’ve scheduled a total of 108 extra flights across the international network to serve the demand in the market,” added Hickey.
