Qantas has unveiled plans to boost flying to India and Singapore from Australia. Meanwhile, services from Brisbane to Manila were announced.

Qantas has unveiled plans to boost flights between Singapore and India as part of its latest flight update for broader Asia.

The Australian flag carrier says the focus on its latest wave of additional flying follows calculated studies over a significant period.

Qantas will look to increase flying to Singapore by 10% as part of 2,500 additional seats set to be offered per week.

The airline says its service between Sydney and Singapore will increase from 14 return flights to 17 per week to make the increase possible from 11 December 2024.

Meanwhile, Brisbane will also receive 9 return flights per week, up from the previous 7 offered. Qantas says this adjustment will commence on 27 October 2024.

Additionally, the services will be timed to allow customers to connect to the daily service from Singapore to London. Thanks to these adjustments, Qantas says it’ll be able to reduce overall travel time to Heathrow by four hours.

Lastly, Qantas says it’ll boost flying from Sydney to Bengaluru. Currently, the airline offers 5 weekly flights, which will increase daily over the peak holiday season. The extra two weekly flights will operate between mid-December 2024 through late March 2025 and thus add 12,000 seats.

Qantas Adds New Brisbane To Manila Route

In addition to boosting service to Singapore and India, Qantas also unveiled plans to begin four weekly flights to Manila from Brisbane with its Airbus A330.

Service is expected to recommence on 28 October 2024, and it will be the first time the red kangaroo has connected to the two cities again in over a decade.

Qantas forecasts a staggering 100,000 seats will be offered between Australia and the Philippines thanks to the latest service announcement and expected commencement date.
