Qantas to Fly to Vancouver for Summer and Ski Holidays
Qantas has today announced it will return to Vancouver with an extended seasonal schedule, providing customers with new travel options over the North American summer and winter holiday seasons.*

Qantas Executive Manager International Sales, Stephen Thompson, said the decision to return to Vancouver came at the end of a successful first season of flying during the December-January travel period.

“Our direct Vancouver services proved really popular so we’re pleased to expand them this year, offering customers more flights on more days over winter and summer, and delivering another boost for inbound tourism for Australia,” said Mr Thompson.


Our focus with this new schedule is to give customers more choice. We’ve increased services from two to three per week, and will ensure customers can maximise their holiday time with night flights in both directions”.

Made possible by Qantas’ continued focus on improving aircraft utilisation, Mr Thompson said the services also deliver on the airline’s strategy of targeting seasonal peaks to provide customers with more choice at the time of year they want to travel.


Qantas will operate 33 return services between Sydney and Vancouver - 13 return services in June/July, and 20 return services from mid-December to late January 2016, operated by a three-cabin, 364-seat refurbished B747 aircraft.

Honolulu schedule improvements

Qantas is also making improvements to its Honolulu services with schedule changes to improve arrival and departure times in Honolulu. The new times will open up more onward connections to other Hawaiian Islands, and will also facilitate a fifth weekly service to operate on Mondays during peak seasons, from 7 September – 19 October 2015 and 30 November 2015 – 25 January 2016.

At least it's a 6-7 hour turn around at YVR this time, not a 36 hour like last month.

Being nonstop in both directions, I do see a light at the end of the tunnel for further frequencies.

The failures of the earlier attempts were in large part due to the need to deal with US formalities when it went via HNL and later via SFO.

looks like QF are increasing their North America frequencies which is a good thing...

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 4:11 am.
