Qantas: Fleet renewal will lead to more direct routes in smaller regional centres

    Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce, speaking on the sidelines of the IATA AGM, reported (05-Oct-2021) the company’s long term renewal of its domestic narrowbody fleet has the potential to “drive big improvements in trip cost and overall efficiency”. Mr Joyce stated: “These aircraft deliver a step change in reducing fuel burn and carbon emissions by up to around 15%”, adding: “We’re talking to each of the manufacturers about how we can accelerate the development and use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) for our domestic flying”. He said: “The mix of aircraft we’re considering means we’ll have more operational flexibility, which for customers translates into more direct routes to smaller regional centres and more choice of flights throughout the day”.
