Qantas Group has announced the appointment of a new CEO for its regional and charter business, QantasLink.

QantasLink Has A New CEO

Rachel Yangoyan has been revealed as the newest addition to the Qantas Group board.

She will take over from John Gissing, who announced he would retire in November 2023.

However, once John departs from his role as CEO, he’ll take over an advisory role at the company for one year.

A Long History At Qantas

Rachel Yangoyan isn’t new to the Qantas Group, having been part of the company for 20 years.

Roles have included key executive positions such as Customer Experience, Operations, Airports, Loyalty and Strategy.

As a result, Rachel had experience in many areas of the business before this appointment.

Comments From Qantas

Rachel has a deep understanding of what it takes to run an airline and brings a lot of capability to this role. As CEO of QantasLink, she’ll be responsible for our regional and charter operations, which are key parts of our business and also key to the role we play in connecting remote parts of Australia. This appointment completes the new leadership team structure we announced earlier in the year, which is focused on dealing with the challenges and opportunities now in front of us.

QantasLink Important Future Coming

QantasLInk has a big future ahead of it, beginning as early as the next few months when significant fleet changes take shape.

Qantas will welcome its first Airbus A220 delivery by the end of the calendar year for deployment at QantasLink.

The expectation is that the A220 will play a pivotal role in developing the QantasLink network into future decades.

Qantas now has new route possibilities thanks to its highly efficient nature and natural progression from previous single-aisle regional types.

The addition of the Airbus A220 will also see the retirement of the Boeing 717.
