Take off from Newcastle to Adelaide with Qantas.

Qantas has just announced that they will connect to Adelaide 4 times a week and will be adding a Sunday flight to the current Monday, Wednesday, and Friday schedule.

The fourth flight will commence 31 July 2022 and will give travellers the perfect excuse for a long weekend in South Australia.  Flyout Friday and return Sunday or stay a little longer and fly home on Monday, the choice is yours.

Qantas has partnered with Alliance Airlines to operate an Embraer E190 jet aircraft on this service with 10 business and 84 economy seats. The E190 is the perfect size for the short 2 hour 15 minute flight time from Newcastle to Adelaide.

If you are booking online you may see a description such as 'Flight QF1949 is operated by Alliance Airlines' or similar, and when boarding the plane youwill notice it features Alliance Airlines' livery and logos.

After a quick 2 hour 15 min flight, you will find yourself in the heart of South Australia with a bustling city and famous wine region right at your fingertips. 

Head to the Barossa Valley, check out some AFL at the Adelaide Oval, immerse yourself in the Adelaide Central Market or at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Adelaide has something for everyone.
