Qantas boss promises return with cheap fares when air travel resumes

Alan Joyce CEO of Australia’s national carrier Qantas has outlined three things he promises will return after a lengthy and costly suspension of service due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In an open letter to travellers, staff and other stakeholders the airline boss said “low fares” would be a key element of getting the industry moving again.

“Airlines will be keen to stimulate travel demand to get their people and aircraft back to work and restart their cashflow pipelines, repairing the damage done by the devastating and sudden drop in revenue. That’s good news for consumers because it means plenty of good deals.”
