Mr Clifford said Mr Joyce, currently Chief Executive Officer of Qantas subsidiary airline Jetstar, was an outstanding executive with wide experience in all facets of the airline industry.

"Alan will assume the role of Chief Executive Designate from today and will also join the Board of Qantas with immediate effect."

Mr Clifford said Geoff Dixon would step down as Qantas Chief Executive after Qantas' Annual General Meeting on 28 November 2008.

"Geoff and Alan will work together over the next four months to ensure a smooth transition and continuity.

"Geoff will remain available to Qantas on a consulting basis until 31 March 2009."

Mr Clifford said Alan Joyce had been employed with the Qantas Group since 2000 and had previously worked for Ansett and Aer Lingus in senior management roles (see biography).

"Alan is, we believe, the best person to take Qantas forward in what is a very challenging environment.

"He will be ably supported by what the Board and I regard as a very talented team of managers throughout the Qantas Group."

Mr Clifford praised Geoff Dixon who he said, together with his team, has led Qantas through numerous challenges since his appointment as Chief Executive in 2000.

"Qantas has successfully adapted and responded to the myriad challenges the industry has faced since 2001 and is duly recognised as one of the best managed airlines in the world."
