Qantas: New airport security arrangements would not lead to higher airfares

    Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said he doesn’t expect airfares to increase in the next 10 years due to any additional charges to improve security at Australian airports (AAP, 21-Aug-2017). Qantas will moved to implement any additional security measures and intends to do so in a fashion that does not require it to raise fares, according to Mr Joyce. He added that security and the travelling experience is a “shared responsibility across airlines and airports” and “we have to make sure we have the resources to make sure the travelling experience is still very good, and the security experience is what the government and professionals tell us to implement”.
