Qantas is the world’s second oldest airline. Founded in the Queensland outback in 1920, Qantas has grown to be Australia’s largest domestic and international airline. Registered originally as Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited (QANTAS), Qantas is widely regarded as the world’s leading long distance airline and one of the strongest brands in Australia.
We have built a reputation for excellence in safety, operational reliability, engineering and maintenance, and customer service. In 2004, we launched Jetstar in Australia – a low cost carrier that has since grown to five Jetstar-branded airlines operating across Asia Pacific.
The Qantas Group’s main business is the transportation of customers using two complementary airline brands – Qantas and Jetstar. Our airline brands operate regional, domestic and international services.
The Group’s broad portfolio of subsidiary businesses ranges from Qantas Freight Enterprises to Qantas Frequent Flyer and adjacent Qantas Loyalty businesses. We also operate subsidiary businesses including other airlines.
