If Qantas wants to relocate its heavy maintenance and head office to Avalon Airport there’s room to do so, its boss says.
But Avalon chief executive Justin Giddings said The Flying Kangaroo would need to build facilities at the airport because all its hangars were leased.
“Any move would probably have to involve building hangars but certainly we would work with anyone who was willing to do that,’ Mr Giddings said.
It comes as Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews prepares to put a “very attractive” offer to Qantas, after the airline said it was looking to consolidate its offices which are spread across three states including Victoria, and potentially move its heavy maintenance from Brisbane.
Qantas Group chief financial officer Vanessa Hudson said the airline is also looking to move its flight simulators in Sydney and Melbourne.
“Like most airlines, the ongoing impact of COVID means we’ll be a much smaller company for a while. We’re looking right across the organisation for efficiencies, including our $40 million annual spend on leased office space,” Ms Hudson told News Corp.
“For instance, we could co-locate the Qantas and Jetstar head offices in a single place rather than splitting them across Sydney and Melbourne.”
