Qantas won't yet commit to extending any of its North West Queensland routes.
After going down to one flight a day in March, at the moment Qantas are only operating two flights a week between Brisbane and Mount Isa and one a week between Townsville and Mount Isa.
Qantas say they are also flying on Wednesdays between Mount Isa and Brisbane.
On April 16 Qantas said they were flying as part of the minimum domestic and regional network supported by the Australian Government which sees the number of passenger flights they operate increase from 105 per week currently to 164 per week to all capital cities and 36 regional destinations.
"While travel restrictions mean most passenger flights are not commercially viable there remains a need for some essential travel - particularly given the distances between most Australian cities," Qantas said.
"These flights will also provide critical freight capacity, which has fallen significantly as commercial air networks have shrunk. Much of the bellyspace will be used for mail and other urgent shipments, including medical equipment."
