Member News: 100 Years of Qantas
The Chamber is proud to congratulate our valued Member Qantas on turning 100!
For 100 years, Qantas has been taking Australia and Australians to the world. Now as we look ahead and celebrate the beginning of our next century, join us as we dream bigger, fly further and create a brighter future, together.
Check out the video below to see Qantas’ evolution over the past century.
Past, present and future
“The story of Qantas is the story of modern Australia – past, present and future.
It’s a remarkable and unlikely tale of how a humble air mail operation in outback Queensland became a national carrier flying over 50 million passengers a year.
It’s a story of service – through peace, war, natural disaster and national celebration.
It’s a story of innovation – from a 31-stop, 12 day flight to London, to operating the world’s first non-stop flights between Australia and Europe.
But most of all, it’s a story shared by all Australians. Thanks for joining us in Qantas’ Centenary year as we celebrate that story and look towards creating new stories for future generations to tell.”
– Alan Joyce, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Qantas Airways Limited
