Skiers and boarders can now fly QantasLink to Australia's highest airport from all capital cities via Melbourne or Sydney and be on the slopes in record time! 2002 marks the airline's third year servicing Mount Hotham ski resort, located on the roof of Australia in Victoria and home to some of Australia's best powder snow and most challenging runs.
This season QantasLink will be flying direct scheduled services to Mount Hotham from Sydney and Melbourne, incorporating timetabled 'through' transfers from all other capital cities and regional areas.
Mount Hotham General Manager, Helen Moran, said the continuation of scheduled air services to Mount Hotham and the introduction of timetabled transfers from all other regional destinations demonstrates the continuing growth and significant domestic and international market potential of Mount Hotham for the future.
"We are delighted with Qantas for their continued support of growing Australian tourist destinations," Helen said. "Our intention at Mount Hotham has always been to further enhance our guests' holiday experience. With the option of flying directly to the slopes, there is a significant decrease in travel time, therefore, our guests can spend more time doing what they love…snow riding."
Return flights from Sydney to Mount Hotham operate on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with connecting flights available from Queensland. Return flights from Melbourne operate Thursday, Friday and Sunday, with connecting flights available from Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania.
