The Cairns International Airport is not a large airport; therefore, it is not a main hub to any airline that services this location. However, Qantas Airlines uses the Cairns International Airport more than any of the other airlines that fly into and out of this location. A large part of the reason for this is that Qantas Airlines also has flights on QantasLink planes coming into and out of the Cairns International Airport.
