07-Aug-2017 Adelaide Airport has welcomed Jetstar’s announcement today that it will fly direct between Adelaide and Hobart from November this year.

The new services, the first direct flights between Adelaide and Hobart since 2010, will operate three times a week from 14 November 2017 ahead of the peak holiday season. 

The new route follows Jetstar’s introduction of services from Adelaide to both Avalon (Melbourne) and Maroochydore in 2016. 

Jetstar’s new flights represent more than 56,000 additional seats between Adelaide and Hobart each year. 

Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Mark Young, said it was great to see Jetstar continue to expand its network out of Adelaide

“South Australians will now be able to easily access Hobart both for business and to enjoy the spectacular sights in and around Tasmania’s capital city,” Mr Young said. 

“We also expect there will be plenty of Tasmanian residents who will want to experience what Adelaide has to offer including our world class wine and seafood, and natural experiences such as Kangaroo Island.

“The Adelaide-Hobart route has been our largest unserved market for some time. We know there is significant demand from customers to fly direct rather than via Sydney or Melbourne.” 

Return services between Adelaide and Hobart will be operated using Jetstar’s 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It will depart Hobart at 5:45pm, arriving in Adelaide at 7:15pm then depart Adelaide at 7:45pm and arriving in Hobart at 10.05pm.
