What does Qantas do?
Founded in regional Queensland in 1920 – as Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services – Qantas has played a central role in the development of the Australian and international aviation industry and is the oldest continuously operating airline in the world.
Today the Qantas is a diverse global aviation business, comprising Qantas Domestic, Qantas International, the Jetstar low-cost carrier group and Qantas Loyalty. The Group’s regional airline QantasLink operates to a vast network of regional destinations across Australia.
What activities can Qantas offer?
Qantas could potentially host visits at various locations around Australia, providing timing can be mutually agreed and security aspects addressed. The activity is open to negotiation, but could include some or all of the following:
- An introduction to Qantas operations;
- A tour of the available Qantas facilities, noting that access to airside areas at Airports is can be challenging; and
- Overview of career opportunities at Qantas including entry requirements.
Where can they potentially offer activities?
Activities could potentially be arranged at any location that Qantas or QantasLink fly to. However, preferred locations would be at the major Qantas hubs of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane Airports, and the secondary hubs of Adelaide and Perth.
The Qantas Pilot Academy at Toowoomba, SE Queensland would also be a very educational visit for AAFC Cadet Units.
