Qantas in short
Qantas is the world's second oldest airline, started in 1920 under the name Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Service. They are based in Sydney with hubs in Melbourne, Brisbane, Singapore, and London Heathrow. With Qantas you can go on nonstop flights and multi-stop flights, you will be connected between Australia's major airports and all cities around the world.
Despite some local success, things only really took off for the airline that would become Qantas Airways when it formed a lucrative partnership with Imperial Airways, a British company that set the scene for British Airways. Combined efforts and resources saw the success of this new venture skyrocket, with regular services between Brisbane and Darwin commencing in 1934. The following year this new airline began launching international flights to far-flung destinations including Singapore. However, the advent of World War II would throw a spanner in the engine of this enterprising airline, with half the fleet destroyed by military forces and the remaining aircraft was turned over to the Australian government. Once the war was one however, Qantas Airways returned to grace the skies once more, this time firmly establishing itself as an international airline to watch out for.
In the decades that followed, savvy ventures and rebrands saw the airline become even more established in the industry, with the 1990s proving a particularly pivotal time for the company. Today, the airline flies to more than 80 different destinations across the globe with a fleet size that totals more than a hundred modern aircraft. With a host of successful subsidiaries and passenger numbers on the rise, Qantas Airways shows no signs of being grounded again anytime soon.
