Strategic/Air Australia: extra Brisbane, Melbourne flights to USA

By John Walton     Filed under: Melbourne, Brisbane, Airbus A330, Honolulu, Strategic Airlines, Air Australia

In brief: Strategic Airlines' flights from Brisbane and Melbourne to Honolulu haven't started yet, but the airline -- soon to be called Air Australia -- is already planning extra weekly flights.

Australian Business Traveller reported last week that the airline plans Wednesday and Friday flights from Brisbane, plus Thursday and Saturday flights from Melbourne.

That schedule starts in just a few months, with a planned launch date of 14 December.

Now the airline has added an extra flight from each Australian airport.

From Brisbane, there'll also be a Sunday service, while Melbourne will see Monday services as well.

This means we'll see

  • Brisbane-Honolulu: Wednesday, Friday, Sunday (with the return Honolulu-Brisbane service on Monday, Thursday and Saturday)
  • Melbourne-Honolulu: Monday, Thursday, Saturday (with Honolulu-Melbourne on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday)
