About Qantas

A message from our CEO

“We have a long history of innovation at Qantas and we’re proud to have built strong customer relationships that extend beyond their experiences flying with us. To keep improving the experience of our customers, people and operations, we need to keep evolving and find different ways of doing things. Sometimes we need to look outside of our organisation to do that. By working with Startups and Scaleups we can identify new ideas while helping them achieve their goals.”

– Alan Joyce, CEO, Qantas Airways

About Qantas

Qantas Group is built on innovation. Our founders were big picture thinkers who had a vision for aviation to change Australia – ever since then, we’ve always looked ahead to that next big breakthrough.

Since we began operations in the 1920s as a small regional carrier, linking Queensland’s outback communities, the Qantas Group has continued to innovate and grow. We now fly over 50 million people a year across the Qantas and Jetstar brands, have 12 million Qantas Frequent Flyer and Business Rewards members and continue to diversify our portfolio with adjacent businesses across financial services, health and wellbeing, retail and data, and marketing.

We think there’s so much more to come – and we want you to be part of it.

The AVRO Accelerator is an invitation to come on board and help us shape the future of innovation in Australia and beyond. It’s named after our first aircraft, the AVRO 504K, as a tribute to the entrepreneurial sprit of our founders – and the talented Qantas Group people who are carrying on the legacy today.

We’re offering you a chance to partner with us and bring your ideas to life through a three month accelerator program. We’re offering the scale and global reach of the Qantas Group’s brands and our deep knowledge of our highly engaged customer base, with two million unique customer interactions per week, and an extensive partner network including airline partners, loyalty partners, suppliers and distributors. We also offer funding support and access to guidance and mentorship from industry leading experts. We think its a unique opportunity – and we hope you agree.

We’re looking forward to working with you.
