In Conversation with Alan Joyce, Qantas Group CEO
Exclusive Breakfast at the Sofitel London St James
On 24 March 2018, Qantas Airways will launch an historic milestone – the first non-stop flight from Australia to the United Kingdom with their 787 Dreamliner fleet. This landmark flight marks a huge leap forward in the links between the two countries, transforming what started in the 1930s as a two-week journey to 17 hours, and is also the first stage in a revolutionary project by Qantas to deliver regular direct services between the UK and Europe with the east coast of Australia.
This milestone comes at a critical time when the UK and Australia are re-defining their political, business and economic relationships in a post-Brexit era. Join us for an intimate conversation with Alan, over breakfast at the magnificent Sofitel London St James, about the importance of leadership and vision in a time of change and transformation for both Qantas and the Australian-UK relationship.
