Qantas are now making noises about moving their head office from Sydney to another location. 

I undertook this to mean they are looking to move their operations (head office) at mascot (not the airport) to another location.  This is the corporate function.

Geelong seems to think avalon might be a good maintenance base and that could be right but I thought they were doing moist maintenance now in asia?

Locating maintenance at Avalon and Corporate at Geelong CBD might be doable?

It might create some cheap flights to Avalon with planes heading for maintenance?  This has been the case for Ningbo, about 350 km SE of Shanghai, where China Eastern is based.

The bulk of the maintenance off-shored by QF was for the small size fleets, 747, 380, 717. The larger size fleets are mostly done on shore.

One benefit in choosing Avalon would be land is plentiful with space to build as many buildings as you like.  I am assuming this would not be for line maintenance rather dock maintenance?

As far as I'm aware Qantas already has a maintenance base at Avalon.

Is this not just Joyce playing one Airport Corp/State/Premier off against the other?

It might be the right time to look at moving from Sydney, Why does maintenance of the fleet need to be done in Sydney when land is cheaper elsewhere?

Are they talking about moving corporate office?

Joyce is a shrewd operator, just shaking the tree to see what falls.
My understanding is only their head office, $40mill pa in rent.

That corporate office would have sadly seen quite a few redundancies of late so maybe just maybe they have more space than they need?
