Tuesday, 26 February 2019

Commissioner for Kangaroo Island, Wendy Campana said Qantas was extending its commitment to Kangaroo Island. Qantas flights linked the island to a selection of Australia's capital cities, and now its online wine store was offering the region's wines to frequent flyers.

Kangaroo Island’s boutique food and beverage offering included many great products in addition to its wines including beer, gin, olives and of course seafood, she said.

"The Island crafts some truly unique and fascinating offerings, all of which have been integral in our efforts to promote the Island and develop its economy," Ms Campana said. "I am delighted Qantas, Australia’s leading carrier, is really supporting the Island, not only in developing regular services to the Island but now by getting behind its producers.
