Qantas Introduces A380 Service on Sydney-Johannesburg Route

Fly in Style from Melbourne to Sydney with Qantas' Special Flight

Beginning on July 8, 2024, Qantas will upgrade its Sydney-Johannesburg route to the larger Airbus A380, which will include First Class seating.

Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners presently fly Qantas flights QF63 and QF64 on a daily basis. From the next year, Qantas will upgrade the service to an Airbus A380. Depending on demand, it will operate four to six times a week. In times of high demand, flights will run six times each week.

The new schedule will result in fewer daily flights between Sydney and Johannesburg for Qantas. The overall capacity to South Africa will rise as a result, though. The positive aspect is that it should lead to cheaper airfares and more award availability, which is fantastic for travellers!

Qantas will provide 288 additional seats per week in each direction between Sydney and Johannesburg even with only four weekly Airbus A380 flights. The number of seats will nearly double when Qantas operates six A380s each week. Due to the bigger seats, the A380 provides a more comfortable ride in Economy Class than the Boeing 787.

These flights have not yet been listed on the Qantas website as of Monday afternoon, but the airline anticipates adding them overnight, saying “tickets will be available to purchase from Tuesday.”

Together, Qantas and Jetstar are now operating at about 80% of their pre-Covid international capacity levels; this number is expected to increase to 100% by March 2024 and surpass the milestone in July 2024.
