Well there are many airlines that fly in and out of Australia not all do every major city, not all have been here for a long time, but one airline that you can certainly trust is Qantas. The flying kangaroo has been operating in Australia since 16 November 1920 making it one of the oldest airlines in the world, which is not surprising since it used to take months to get to Australia by boat. With its small beginnings in Winton Queensland Qantas is now truly one of the great world airlines. Having flown on Qantas many times it is easy for me to say they do supply a comforting flight not like some of the unknown names that I have used over the years. I like to know that I’m going to get to my destination safely.

But with being big often sees companies taking risks and with risks sees accidents and that is where Qantas is clearly a stand out company. Now rated the safest airline in the world this gives Qantas an envious title over many airlines. In 2014 it was the first time the world seen more than 100,000 flights per day and one would expect this to grow greatly over the next few years. Sadly in 2014 we sore the loss of a few air planes and many lives, this I hope for many should be an eye opener to look for the company’s safety record before booking the flight.

So in Australia we constantly see more and more budget airlines entering our market some stay and some go and it is always concerning when CASA ( Civil Aviation Safety Authority) releases reports slamming a carrier for safety breaches. Some say CASA is too anal but do we want to lower our standards at the cost of increased incidents. Planes are now more complex than ever and carry more passengers than ever before, I hope that more Airlines will take a look at the way Qantas has chosen to operate and challenge Qantas for the top spot.

So if you are thinking of travelling to and around Australia take a good look at Qantas and remember that a couple of dollars spent on a seat might just be the different in getting her by air or by sea.
