As the flag carrier of Australia, Qantas is an established and distinguished airline catering to everyone, from business travelers to families on vacation. If you're trying to decide which airline to fly with, spoil yourself and fly Qantas.
Why is Qantas the obvious choice? Qantas is the largest airline in Australia and has been in operation for almost one hundred years. The company was established in Queensland in 1920, making it the oldest continuously run airline in the world and the second oldest airline overall. When you’re putting your life in an airline’s hands, you want to know you’ll be taken care of – and Qantas has proven it will do just that.
- Based at the Sydney Airport, Qantas flies almost everywhere, including 20 locations within Australia and 21 international destinations in 14 different countries. You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing your flight! If you’re looking to fly domestically, Qantas offers Qantas CityFlyer – direct flights to and from state capital cities Adelaide

. These flights offer convenience and value, especially for business travelers.
Awards – Want proof that Qantas is the best Australian airline? Just look at the multitude of awards Qantas has won over the years, from service to entertainment, wine, and design awards. Qantas won the Skytrax Best Airline in Australia award in 2005, 2006, and 2008, and was in the top five airlines for Skytrax five years in a row!
In-Flight Entertainment and Amenities – Design and entertainment options won Qantas lots of its awards over the years, so you know you won’t be bored flying with Qantas. Every single Qantas flight offers some kind of audio video entertainment. Depending on the flight, Qantas offers services like Wi-Fi, USB and iPod connectivity, news telecasts, and more.

– Sure, all these amenities seem great, but only if the airfare is affordable. With Qantas, you definitely don’t have to worry about that.
