South Australia is set to welcome more interstate visitors as a $99* one-way flight from Qantas goes on sale today (when customers book a return economy flight from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth or Canberra. Minimum total price $198*).

The flights give interstate visitors a long-awaited chance to fly to SA and discover its famous food and wine, beaches and outback.

South Australia is celebrating 2021 as the Year of South Australian Wine. The state has long been associated with having some of the most credible wineries in the country, and the Year of South Australian Wine will showcase the quality and breadth of winery experiences and events on offer across the state’s 18 wine regions.

As a bonus, Qantas Wine will also give customers a taste of the State’s wine regions with a curated selection of South Australian wines on sale* exclusively to its members.

SATC chief executive Rodney Harrex said it was an exciting time for Australians to visit Adelaide and explore the State’s wineries, wildlife and natural wonder.

“With South Australia in such a great position when it comes to managing the impacts of COVID-19, it makes it an ideal time to travel and enjoy the wide variety of experiences on offer and we are pleased to partner with Qantas to offer such a great fare sale to our fellow Australians” said Mr Harrex.

“Wine tourism is a crucial segment of South Australia’s visitor economy, and welcoming interstate travellers to South Australia in support of our wine and tourism industry is a must. With such an array of experiences in Adelaide and regional South Australia, we really have something for everyone and there is no better time to explore our great state.”

Qantas Group Chief Customer Officer, Stephanie Tully said the airline was committed to helping boost tourism in South Australia and making it easier for Australians to explore their own backyard.  

“We’re thrilled to encourage more Australians to visit South Australia and explore its fantastic food and wine scene. We’ve recently introduced even more flexibility on new bookings, so our customers can plan their next trip to Adelaide with confidence,” said Ms Tully.
