Qantas Flights Operating As Normal

Sydney, 08 July 2005

Qantas has announced that all of its flights are operating as normal following yesterday's terrorist attacks in London.

Qantas Executive General Manager John Borghetti said four Qantas services had departed from London's Heathrow Airport since the attacks, with the first flight due to arrive in Perth this afternoon and the second in Sydney this evening.

"Our services have not been disrupted and customers wishing to book flights to and from the UK can do so through the normal channels," Mr Borghetti said.

He said that Qantas had instituted a waiver and refund policy.

Customers with tickets issued before or on 7 July 2005, for travel to and from the UK up to and including 31 July 2005, can defer or cancel travel without penalty.

Customers wishing to change their plans should call Qantas on 13 13 13 or their travel agent for assistance as soon as possible.

Qantas operates 27 flights a week from Australia to London.
