Australia's Qantas Airways said it is looking at a range of options to strengthen its struggling international operations...Qantas says its international business has not been meeting expectations and market share had fallen in recent years.
The Sydney Morning Herald said on Friday that Qantas was looking at setting up a premium airline in Malaysia and cited speculation the airline had applied for an air operator's certificate in Malaysia which the airline denied.
Τhe Australian Financial Review said Qantas was looking at establishing a full-service subsidiary in Singapore where up to 20 aircraft could be based. The airline would be called "Qantas Asia" or something similar to match Qantas' low-cost subsidiary Jetstar Asia which is also based in Singapore.
The newspaper said Qantas may use the Singapore subsidiary to build up its network in Europe, the report said. The immediate focus was to challenge Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific's market share in Asia, it added.
The move could anger unions which are threatening industrial action at the carrier. Aircraft engineers on Thursday called off plans to strike on Friday but there are plans for further industrial action next week.
