Qantas to add more seats on flights to Delhi from '16

Sydney -Australian carrier Qantas Airways will consider increasing flights to destinations such as Beijing and Delhi from 2016.

Qantas will be using longer-range Dreamliner planes as part of an overhaul of its Asian network.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, ahead of the launch of its proposed alliance with Emirates, Qantas has provided more details of its plans for the region, including a re-timing of flights to ensure they better connect with other services.

Qantas will cease flying to Frankfurt six months earlier than planned, and the airline's final flight to the German city will now be on April 15.

It will also stop flying between Adelaide and Singapore on April 14, and between Perth and Hong Kong on March 31. It will reduce Perth-Singapore services from two to one a day, the report said.

However, Qantas will increase its Brisbane-Hong Kong services from four a week to seven by June, and add four additional weekly flights between Sydney and Singapore.

According to the report, the number of Qantas flights to Asian destinations will remain about the same, but the total number of seats will increase.

That is because seats that were previously set aside on Qantas planes for passengers flying to Europe will now be available to those heading to Asia.

Qantas has said it is looking to increase its services to destinations in Asia, which include Beijing, Seoul, Mumbai, Delhi and Tokyo's Haneda Airport using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft from 2016.

Qantas also confirmed that it is considering refurbishing its fleet of Airbus A330 planes to include lie-flat beds in business class.

In an effort to boost its appeal to travellers, it will open a new lounge at Singapore's Changi Airport on March 31. A first-class lounge in Hong Kong is scheduled to open in September.

The chief executive of Qantas International, Simon Hickey, said the first step of the changes was to restructure its existing services to Asia that would no longer be tied to onward links to Europe, the report added.
