A Qantas spokeswoman said airfares are still incredible value these days and continue to be 30 per cent cheaper than they were a decade ago. The fare increase will begin October 29 and will cover Qantas network flights with partner airlines as well.
For example: A return economy ticker to Singapore will increase between $10 and $20, and a business class ticket between $50 and $80
Qantas expects to increase its international capacity by a further 6 per cent this coming year, with new flights to San Francisco, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bali. Qantas is also expanding its codeshare network with 40 new shared routes in America alone via Oneworld partners such as American Airlines and WestJet.
