On March 28th, Qantas announced it would form a partnership with fledgeling local carrier Oceania Express – to start a behind-the-scenes programme for budding airline executives – after a much-anticipated meeting between the two airline bosses in Sydney.

It follows 10-year-old Alex Jacquot’s letter to Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce asking for advice on how to run an airline he founded during his school holidays. Mr Joyce wrote back to say he would be pleased to discuss further in person – an exchange that has since captured attention globally, including here on Air101. 

Mr Joyce, who became Qantas Group CEO the same month Alex was born, hosted the meeting at the national carrier’s headquarters. They were joined by Qantas Group executives Olivia Wirth (CEO, Qantas Loyalty) and John Gissing (CEO, QantasLink) plus Oceania Express’s 10-year-old Deputy CEO Wolf Stringer and 7-year-old Head of Inflight Service, Mila Jacquot.
