The story of Qantas is a story of connection. From a tiny company of two aircraft and three staff, it started by allowing graziers to connect across some of Australia's most difficult terrain.
Through its connections with the Royal Flying Doctors, Qantas helped to bring medical aid to Australians in remote areas. During the Second World War, it maintained air contact with the United Kingdom and its technology and staff carried out vital air services.
The post-war history of Qantas runs parallel to Australia's history of expansion and connection with the rest of the world. Thanks to Qantas, travel to and from Australia became a possibility for the wider population. Today Qantas connects Australians with each other and the world, both physically through its flight services, and also through the history that it shared with the developing nation.
