Celebrating 100 years of the Spirit of Australia

Latest News|Published 15 November 2019

The countdown is on as we head into our centenary year and we’d love to celebrate this special milestone with you. After all, Qantas has been connecting travellers to the world for almost 100 years. And while times have changed and we have grown, our spirit has remained the same.

From an outback airstrip to becoming Australia's national carrier, from inventing Business Class to becoming the first airline to fly around the world via both hemispheres, innovation has moved us forward. Serving Australia has always been at the core. Qantas has been there in times of hardship and national celebration.

Now as we look ahead to our next century, join us as we take the Spirit of Australia further.
