Increased flights to the North Queensland mining town of Weipa are being offered by Qantas.

British travellers looking to explore Australia on a touring holiday down under may be glad to learn that Qantas has added extra flights from Cairns to the North Queensland town of Weipa.

The airline increased its weekly services from ten to 12 in February and it has now been decided that a further two return flights per week will be added from June 27th onwards, as part of the company’s domestic arm QantasLink.

Narendra Kumar, executive manager of QantasLink, said: “We have responded to increased demand from the local communities with additional services and adding capacity.”

Visitors to the mining town of Weipa can enjoy a range of outdoor activities, including birdwatching, cycling, fishing, golf and mountain biking in the pleasant tropical climate of Australia’s north coast.

Earlier this week, Qantas launched a new service offering flights to Melbourne from Darwin three times per week.
