The Australian and International Pilots Association (AIPA) represents the majority of Qantas and Jetstar pilots. Its members believe all Australians have a right to an affordable, safe, successful and sustainable national air carrier flown by the best-trained and most highly skilled flight crews in the world.
We, more than any other stakeholder, have the airline’s best interests at heart. Our future is aligned with that of a successful Qantas. We believe the Qantas Group can once more become a competitive, profitable airline that is worth investing in and is a destination employer for a pilot body that is highly trained and experienced. Australians deserve and expect such an airline. We are committed to working with the Government and Qantas management to ensure we all act in the best interests of our members, the flying public and the national economy as a whole.
Australia needs a strong, viable national air carrier and, we believe, Qantas can be that carrier again. It is key to our national security, our tourism, our international credibility and for the future of the thirty five thousand strong workforce that underpins the airline.
