14NOV20 / 2300Z - 100 years of Qantas @ YBBN to YLRE Return

100 Years Of QANTAS

On this year 100 years ago, Australia’s first airline was born. Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services or Qantas was started by two World War One veterans Paul McGinness and Hudson Fysh. They envisaged an air service connecting Australia to the world.
One hundred years later, their dreams, ambitions and legacy lives on with Qantas and its vision of not just being an airline, but a pioneer on travel with the purpose of connecting the world and bringing it closer. We ask you to join us next month as we Celebrate the birthday of Australia’s first airline.

We will be operating both the outbound and inbound flight from Brisbane to Longreach, feel free to join us for either both flights or the YBBN to YLRE flight.

Hello Kyan, Welcome to the Infinite Flight Community. So happy that your first post was on our event.

Your gate is: Gate 20

Cant wait to see you at the celebrations!

Happy Flying

Thank you. Also what time are the flights and do we have to use the bombardier

Hi Kyan,

You can find departure times within the Description section, If you hover over the globe next to Departure time, it should give you the event time in your local timezone. If it doesnt feel free to send us a message and we can assist you with finding the time in your local timezone.

As for using the Bombardier Dash-8 Q400, So the flight on this route is only flown with the Dash-8 Q400 as it usually stops at another town along the way to Longreach and one along the way back to Brisbane, so yes you will have to use that aircraft for the flight, as also Longreach isn’t designed to hold twin-engine jet airliners without taking up a lot of space.

Thank you for asking these questions, If you have any more please feel free to reach out again.

Thanks for that. I am actually from Brisbane but it is annoying how infinite flight has not updated the airport so the new runway is there. I did see on the page that they will be updating it soon hopefully.
