Qantas Group reshaping its Asian network

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce, speaking at the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit, stated (08-Aug-2013) the carrier's international business will be “great” again, as it focuses on reshaping its Asian network. He said its agreement with Emirates will allow the carrier to focus on reshaping its Asian network and returning it to profitability. He cited Singapore as an example, where Qantas’ flight timings are no longer dictated by connections onwards to Europe. “In Singapore the timings are delinked from European flights, which allows us to focus on our Asian business customers,” he said.
