Qantas today announced it will offer a special return flight to Istanbul’s Sabiha Göeçken international airport to cater for Australians wanting to attend Centenary of ANZAC commemoration services or visit the region in April.*


Qantas flight QF100 will fly from Sydney to Sabiha Göeçken via Perth on 21 April 2015, and will return on 28 April 2015. The same ‘100’ flight number will be used on the return sector.


Passengers can join the flight from either Sydney or Perth. The service will be operated by a reconfigured Boeing 747 aircraft which seats 364 passengers across.

QF should have got into the spirit of the occasion with QF1915 or similar.

Edit . Oops brain in neutral, first day back at work

It's very tempting to book this flight. Not that I have any intention of attending the Gallipoli commemorations, but I have friends in Istanbul whom I've not seen for many years. When I've looked before, it's been SYD-LHR, then back to IST. Since the Emirates link-up, there is a service x Dubai to IST then IST-LHR via BA.

Bugger! Leaving it a little late in proceedings to book now - we booked our flights 8 months ago.

We're just going to have to suck it up and try and enjoy those FASA on QF1/2 :D See you in Istanbul...

Would have jumped at the opportunity to go to IST with QF (un-related to Gallipoli), but unfortunately am in the middle of the Ecuadorian rain forest on departure dates :-|

I wonder what the plane will be doing for the 6 days until the return. Surely not just sitting on the ground at SAW?

Nice routing I'll bet JB is highly amused at his proposed long haul approach to Europe being put into action for this one off

Could the plane not have completed the journey non-stop SYD-SAW?
