QantasLink will launch direct flights between Sydney and Gladstone next year as it continues to expand its Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 turboprop network.

The Sydney-Gladstone services are scheduled to commence on March 4 2013 and will operate eight times per week, including twice daily on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. The 2-hour 35-minute route will be among the longest operated by QantasLink’s 74-seat Q400s. The carrier expects to receive its 28th Q400 next year.

–          An upgrade of its eight weekly Sydney-Dubbo services from 50-seat Q300 to 74-seat Q400 aircraft,

–          An upgrade of three weekly Sydney-Port Macquarie flights from Q300s to Q400s,

–          An upgrade of Sunday Sydney-Wagga Wagga and Saturday Sydney-Albury services from Q300s to Q400s.
