Qantas confirmed its partnership with Emirates is still important despite announcing nonstop service between Australia and London (Reuters, 07-Jun-2017). Speaking at the IATA AGM in Cancun, Qantas CEO Alan Joyce stated "even when we start flying direct to London, Dubai will still play a big role. Emirates has 40 destinations in Europe. We're never going to fly direct to places like Venice and Prague".
