Here are a few of the most interesting Qantas Airways statistics and facts I was able to dig up including revenue totals and passenger and employee counts. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.
What is Qantas Airways?
Qantas is the world’s second oldest airline. Founded in the Queensland outback in 1920, Qantas has grown to be Australia’s largest domestic and international airline. Registered originally as Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited (QANTAS), Qantas is widely regarded as the world’s leading long distance airline and one of the strongest brands in Australia.
