‘It’s an honour to be joining Qantas, especially at a time when it’s investing so heavily in aircraft and service,’ says Wallace. ‘It’s the world leader in opening up direct international routes, and Project Sunrise is one of the most exciting things happening in aviation. I’m really looking forward to working with Alan and the team.’
Qantas Group CEO, Alan Joyce says Wallace is one of the best airline executives in the region. ‘He brings over two decades of airline experience including his long career at Air New Zealand, with responsibilities spanning sales, revenue management, market development, alliances and cargo.’
Andrew David, who is CEO of Qantas Domestic and International, will retire from the group in September 2023. The role of CEO of Qantas Domestic and International (which was combined during Covid), will return to being two separate portfolios from 1 July 2023. Both roles will report to Qantas Group CEO, Alan Joyce.
The rest of the group management committee remains unchanged.
