Sumary of Qantas ‘Kangaroo Route’ To Fly Between London And Darwin Starting November 14:
- “Qantas has been flying repatriation services from London to Darwin as part of the airline’s efforts to help being Australians home over the past 12 months, so our pilots already have extensive experience operating this particular route.
- ” Starting November 14, 2021, Qantas will operate a Sydney–Darwin–London route five times per week, followed by a Melbourne–Darwin–London route, tentatively scheduled to begin December 18, 2021, pending the Victorian government’s updates to quarantine plans regarding returning passengers.
- To help keep Australians safe from Covid-19, the new “Kangaroo Route” will be rolled out in two stages.
- First, the Darwin layover will be treated strictly as a refueling stop, where passengers traveling from Sydney, Melbourne, or London will be able to visit the shops and international lounge but not leave Darwin International Airport.
- The convenience of this route will mean tapping into brand new markets for tourism and business,” said Michael Gunner, Chief Minister of the Northern Territory.
- “I thank Qantas and the Darwin International Airport for working with us to turn this direct route into reality, which will mark a real turning point for the nation as we work towards the next stages of the National Plan.
