GET set for a domestic airfare war over the next six months as Qantas Group and Virgin Blue ditch marginal routes and redeploy aircraft to the biggest, most popular city-pairs in their network, virtually all of which are on the east coast. Qantas set the ball rolling last week by revealing a 10% capacity increase while Virgin joined the fray today with a series of hard-headed moves – it’s pulled out of the small New Zealand domestic market, boosted trans-Tasman capacity, increased Pacific Blue services to Southeast Asia and confirmed that “recent changes to our flight patterns and frequencies now provide more than 490,000 additional (domestic) seats”. Its international carrier V Australia is also refocusing, exiting Fiji while increasing flights to Los Angeles, Johannesburg and Phuket. Meanwhile, Jetstar has rushed to fill the Kiwi void and will position two extra A320 aircraft in NZ within the next 12 month, giving it eight carriers in the Shaky Isles
- Sydney, November, 2020 -
Work is under way on Short Term Thinking, the first Australian event focused on short stay accommodation.
It will be an action-packed day where all sectors of the industry can meet, learn and network, setting up their year ahead with new relationships, contacts and prospects.
Space has been blocked for mid-November in Sydney.
While a lot can change between then and now, we're confident we'll be able to run a flesh and blood event with live streaming for those who can't make it.
Because final capacity is understandably uncertain at this point, please register your interest to be put on a non-obligatory wait list and also receive the latest updates.
At the moment we're looking for foundation partners - please call event producer Martin Kelly on 0414 774 978 to find out more.
