INCREASED CAPACITY FOR DELEGATES BOUND FOR TASMANIA posted on: 17/7/2012 11:23:11
AUSTRALASIA - Qantas is to add 1,700 additional seats per week to its services between Melbourne and Tasmania from 29 October 2012.
Business Events Tasmania CEO Stuart Nettlefold said: “For some time Tasmania has had the venues and suppliers to host a business event of 1,100 delegates. With the addition of these seats on Qantas flights it will be even easier to bring large groups to Tasmania.”
“Delegates tell us that the friendliness of the people, standard of service, food and wine, business event organisation and our restaurants make attending a business event in Tasmania a highly satisfying experience,” Nettlefold added. “But there is still a misconception among planners that these great attributes can only be experienced with smaller numbers – this is not the case.”
An additional flight per day between Melbourne and Hobart, additional flights into Launceston and upgraded aircraft flying into Devonport with Qantas means much greater choice for delegate access.
