Qantas Achieves Record Profits Despite Falling Shares and AI Stocks Propelling Wall Street Performance

Date:

Qantas, Australia’s leading airline, is reportedly expecting to make a record profit before tax of up to $2.5 billion due to the success of its cost-cutting measures and strategies for returning the company to profitability. However, the Transport Workers Union has demanded that Qantas repay the $2.7 billion in government COVID-19 assistance. As a result, the shares have slumped.

Additionally, stocks of artificial intelligence (AI) companies have contributed to the Wall Street boost. Technology giants such as Amazon have seen dramatic growth due to the prevalence of virtual computing, algorithm-based learning, robotics, augmented reality, and machine learning. AI technology is becoming more and more popular and the demand for it is growing.

Established in 1920, Qantas is the most extensive of the three major Australian flag carriers and is owned by the Queensland Government. The airline is headquartered in Sydney and operates one of the world’s largest domestic and international networks, with flights to 205 destinations in 44 countries. It is the second largest airline in the world by fleet size and is the oldest continuously operating airliner in the world. As a founding member of the oneworld alliance, it provides services to over 1,000 destinations in the entire oneworld network.

Alan Joyce is the current CEO of Qantas. He is an Australian businessman who first joined Qantas in 1996. He was appointed to the position of CEO in November 2008 and has since played an important role in leading the company’s strategy and operations. Under his leadership, Qantas has implemented cost-cutting measures and strategies in order to return the airline to profits, such as in the face of the current crisis. His vision and dedication to the company have been commended and praised by shareholders and employees alike.
