AIPA trusts that today's announcement by the outgoing CEO of Qantas will provide the circuit breaker needed to allow Qantas to move forward.
"We look forward to working constructively with incoming CEO Vanessa Hudson to rebuild our iconic airline into the respected and trusted brand that has made all Australians proud," said AIPA President Captain Tony Lucas.
"There is much work to be done, however we trust that Ms Hudson recognises the power of respecting and valuing all Qantas staff and how that can play a significant role in the renewal of the airline.
"The Spirit of Australia may be deflated, but it is not defeated and if we all work together, I'm confident Qantas can be great once more."
