Qantas cans direct Melbourne flights
QANTASLINK has announced it will discontinue its weekly direct service between Melbourne and Coffs Harbour.
The service will cease from August 6 due to a reduction in customer demand on the route.
A QantasLink spokesperson said the airline endeavoured to keep the direct service running between Coffs Harbour and the popular Victorian capital city.
"Unfortunately we just aren't seeing enough people book seats on the flights," the spokesperson said.
"This is despite our hard work over the past two years to promote the service, as well as deploying smaller aircraft on the route to better match capacity with demand."
The airline has reassured customers they will be refunded if they have paid for a flight to Melbourne after August 6.
"If a customer has purchased a flight after August 6, they have the choice of either a refund or we'll re-accommodate them on a QantasLink flight from Melbourne to Coffs Harbour via Sydney."
Customers can still travel to and from Coffs Harbour to Melbourne via Sydney.
Qantas apologises to customers for the inconvenience.
