Cheap Qantas Flights
Qantas is Australia’s national and largest airline, and the name was actually once an acronym standing for “Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services” – which is why it’s one of the only words beginning with “Q” that doesn’t have a “U” as its second letter! Skytrax recently named Qantas the 2nd best airline in the world (behind British Airways).
In addition to Qantas flights, the company also has a stake in several other smaller (and some low-cost) airlines throughout the region, including Jetstar Airways, JetConnect, QantasLink, Air Pacific, Australian Air Express and even Air New Zealand. Qantas is second in line only to Singapore Airlines in receiving the new Airbus A380, and is reported to be investigating ways to make the flight from Sydney to London nonstop.
Qantas flies to more than 80 destinations on the continents of Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America as well as New Zealand. The airline is based in Sydney, Australia, with Kingsford Smith International Airport as its main hub. Qantas also operates hubs at Melbourne Airport and Brisbane Airport, and it operates a large number of flights to and from Singapore Changi Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, London Heathrow Airport and Perth Airport.
Qantas is not only a member of the OneWorld airline alliance, it was a co-founder with American Airlines, British Airways, Canadian Airlines and Cathay Pacific.
