Qantas travel 'not affected by BA strikes'

Article content

16 December 2009

People looking to travel to Australia this winter will be encouraged to hear that Qantas has confirmed it is to continue its flights from the UK as normal, despite British Airways (BA) strike action.

Group executive for government and corporate affairs at Qantas, David Epstein, said that even those booked on codeshare services operated by BA will be catered for.

"All Qantas services between Australia and the UK will operate as scheduled over the Christmas and new year period," he remarked.

According to Mr Epstein, the company has been working day and night to ensure that all passengers on a codeshare flight can be accommodated on existing Qantas services over the holiday season.

Customers who are likely to be affected will be contacted over the coming days and informed of their available options, the organisation added.

Last month, the firm announced that it is making an effort to boost its environmentally-friendly practices by joining the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Users Group.
