Inland NSW Tourism welcomes QantasLink’s announcement that it will be increasing its capacity on eight return services between Dubbo and Sydney, resulting in an additional 384 seats offered on the route each week.
According to Inland NSW Tourism CEO, Graham Perry, the additional capacity is desperately needed as the region is burgeoning.
“Increased air access is tremendously important to communities across regional NSW, so QantasLink’s announcement is very welcome news for Dubbo,” said Mr Perry.
“With the simultaneous news that domestic tourism figures are increasing, this is significant for Dubbo and surrounds, and will contribute to our collective efforts to increase visitation.”
Matthew Fuller, General Manager of Taronga Western Plains Zoo and a Board Director of Inland NSW Tourism concurred.
“This is very positive news for the region, indeed,” said Mr Fuller.
“We have been working closely with QantasLink, a key partner of the Zoo, for additional air capacity to assist the flow of passengers into Dubbo. The news that we have an additional 384 seats a week will increase potential for a greater flow of visitors, particularly during peak periods.”
