About Qantas Airlines
It is one of the largest airline carriers in terms of fleet size, international flights ,and international destinations. With a humble beginning in 1935, it has completed almost 100 years of flying. QANTAS is an acronym for “Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services” as it served only these regions initially. It owned an impressive 90% of the domestic market share before the onset of budget airlines.
Even the budget market is not untouched by Qantas airlines, as it runs Jetstar Airlines for its domestic destinations & New Zealand.
The original Qantas office dates back to 1921 in Brisbane and then Queensland in 1930. Later in the year with a partnership with British Imperial Airways, it had one of its first international Qantas airline tickets started to Singapore. Qantas Airlines then transitioned beautifully to jet-age in 1959 with their first purchase of Boeing aircraft. In the early 90s, it merged with Australian airlines and was branded exclusively as Qantas Airlines for the future. It is also one of the founding members of One World Alliance with some other notable airlines.
To compete effectively in the budget market Qantas Airlines launched Jetstar to cover the domestic market. It further deep-dived into the market by launching Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan & Jetstar Pacific. As of 2014, 65% of the market share belongs to a strong codeshare agreement with other airlines. It also runs one of the oldest frequent flyer programs with 10.5 million users as last reported in 2015. Qantas headquarters are based out of Mascot, Sydney, New South Wales.
