Qantas Freight launches new Tasman Freighter Service

Qantas Freight announced it would commence a new Boeing 767 freighter
operation between Australia and New Zealand on 15 June 2009*.

Executive Manager Qantas Freight Mr Stephen Cleary said the operation would enable Qantas to retain wide body freight capacity on the route following the introduction of the Qantas Group’s new trans-Tasman passenger schedule.

“The Tasman is one of Qantas Freight’s most important markets and the investment we have made in this new operation reflects the value of our long standing relationships in both countries,” Mr Cleary said.

“This is a great solution for customers as it allows us to maintain wide body services and capacity to meet market demand on the route.

*Subject to regulatory approval.
