The Qantas brand encompasses a community spirit, a pioneering nature, a professional style of service, a tradition of excellence and a reputation for innovation – all delivered with a distinctly Australian personality.

“Receiving the ‘Best Pacific Airline’ award for the fifth consecutive year at the 21st TTG Travel Awards 2010 is recognition of our continued efforts. On behalf of Qantas I would like to thank our team in the Asia-Pacific for their commitment in delivering outstanding service to customers across the world.
