Qantas will start using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on its Sydney–Santiago route starting in late June 2020.

The carrier will also add three new return flights per week between the two cities. These new flights will increase the number available from four per week to daily, adding more than 20,000 seats each year.

“The change is part of the phased delivery of the national carrier’s six additional Dreamliners, as the more efficient aircraft gradually replace the Boeing 747 aircraft on Qantas’ international network by the end of 2020,” said the airline in a press release.

“Our Dreamliner has been extremely popular with customers, so we’re pleased to give those travelling between Australia and South America the opportunity to experience it,” said Naren Kumar, international acting CEO, Qantas.

“We launched our direct service from Sydney to Santiago in 2012 and the demand from Australians and South Americans has given us confidence to add even more flights on the route,” he added.

The Dreamliner has 42 business, 28 premium-economy and 166 economy seats. The business-class seats are in a 1-2-1 configuration, with seat width of 23–24 inches, seat pitch of 80 inches and seat recline of 180 degrees.
