ATEC welcomes Qantas ruling

The Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) has welcomed the decision to grant Qantas and Emirates approval for their alliance for five years.

By working together in Europe and the Middle East, the carriers will be able to "rebuild some of the decline" in traditional markets, it declared.

"ATEC is pleased with this decision which will provide greatly improved access and connectivity across the Qantas network and help disperse more international visitors across Australia," managing director Felicia Mariani said.

"Making new connections with Europe, via hubs in the Middle East, will help strengthen and rebuild some of the decline we have seen in our traditional markets more recently."
