It began international passenger flights in May 1935 and is widely regarded as one of the world’s best long distance carriers with a reputation for safety, operational reliability, engineering and maintenance, and customer service.

The Qantas Group’s main business is the transportation of customers using two complementary airline brands – Qantas and Jetstar – operating regional, domestic and international services.
