The flights are expected to bring 5,300 tourists to the region and will generate more than $9.2 million and create 85 new jobs.

The news was announced as Queensland celebrated no new cases of coronavirus on Wednesday.

The state had eased restrictions to allow limited internal travel from Monday, however the state's borders still remain closed.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the boost in flights would help revive the area, especially for Queensland resident who wouldn't be able to travel overseas soon.

The Premier said Brisbane residents looking to get away would find that the Whitsundays had a lot to offer.

"You only have to look at the beautiful scenery here to appreciate everything this region has to offer from the national parks out to the beautiful reef, to the locals, you will have a wonderful experience."

Ms Palaszczuk said the government was continuing to negotiate with other airlines including Qantas to bring more air travel to rural Queensland next.
