"Qantas will continue to campaign on social justice issues", 9 May 2019

Qantas chief Alan Joyce has vowed the airline will continue to campaign on social issues, saying its stance has been vindicated by strong public support.

Mr Joyce led the airline’s highly visible promotion of same-sex marriage during the 2017 plebiscite and says Qantas’ brand is stronger than it’s ever been, a testament his public position worked for the company.
