Get ready all snow bunnies, because getting your fix of fresh powder just got a whole lot easier thanks to Qantas. A new flight route has been announced which will allow Adelaides faster and direct access to our country’s ski areas.
The flight between Adelaide and Albury is a seasonal route launched by Qantas with two weekly flights between July 8 and September 25.
Working with Albury City Council, the new flight is expected to boost interstate tourism during the ski season and provide much-needed funding to an industry that has suffered significantly over the past two years due to Covid and restrictions of travel.
The direct link between Adelaide and the regional city will allow South Australians to head for the snow in up to three hours of travel time by eliminating the need for a stopover in Melbourne or Sydney.
The new flight path comes after the success of similar seasonal routes from Sydney last year with great success.
Albury is rapidly developing into one of Australia’s most connected regional areas and serves as a gateway to the country’s best ski resorts with Mt Hotham and Falls Creek just hours away.
Although the route is only temporary at the moment, it is hoped that it will become a permanent part of the dashboard and become available year-round if there is enough demand to do so.
The Victoria and NSW snowfields open in early June and lift passes are already available to purchase with an early bird discount for those getting in early!
Take that winter trip you deserve!
