QantasLink is now operating Tassie Devil branded Boeing 717 jet into Tasmania. This slightly increases the total frequency of flights, across all airlines, into Tasmania, making it even easier to enjoy a Huon Valley Escape. You can fly into Hobart, spend two nights enjoying Mona, Salamanca Market. Then head south via Mt Wellington summit for another two nights in the Huon Valley, Far South or D’Entrecasteaux Channel.
The refurbished jets include business class seats, which have been missing on the Tasmanian route, and individual in-flight entertainment. One of the aircraft has been newly branded the Tassie Devil, making it a great flying advertisement for the state.
The new jets and branding are an example of a three-year partnership deal between Qantas and Tourism Tasmania with joint marketing initiatives domestically and overseas to attract more visitors to Tasmania.
“Our refurbished Boeing 717 jets have already been flying on the Sydney-Hobart route and the feedback from customers has been overwhelming. We’re really looking forward to introducing it on the Melbourne to Hobart route from tomorrow.” says Qantas.
