QANTAS: Sydney and Melbourne to Delhi, India starts
Qantas is flying for the first time ever to Delhi from Melbourne. Flights from Melbourne start tomorrow (22 December) to Delhi, India, and from Sydney, already on sale, also start on 6 December, bur regularly from 14 December. One or two stop flights at realistic prices from Sydney seem to start around 21 December
Good news, however, the route’s are odd because they are using A330’s to complete the flights:
- Melbourne – Delhi (QF69/QF70), will run 4 times a week, all year, but initially via Adelaide (?), departures on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 09:25, 90 minutes in Adelaide, and then 18:10 arrival in Delhi. The return flight to Melbourne will be non-stop, departure 19:55, Melbourne arrival 13:35 the next day
- Sydney – Delhi (QF67/QF68) – 3 times a week but building to daily by end of 2021, fly via Darwin on the way out, and direct on the return. Departure is at 06:05, 90 minutes in Darwin, arriving Delhi 15:35. Return 18:00 departure and 11:45 next day arrival in Sydney.
Those A330’s have 28 business lie-flat business class seats and 269 economy seats

I love digital, except when my phone dies, which happened to me on the last night of my recent visit to New Zealand
Fantastic news for those Australians with north Asian heritage. I’m not so sure, I would be eager to travel to India with their current vaccination rates. On the other hand, its been 7 long years since my last visit to this fascinating country.
