Biographies

The Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited, or QANTAS, was established in November 1920. However the first regular services between Charleville and Cloncurry was not established until 1922. QANTAS Limited collaborated with British Airways' predecessor Imperial Airways to establish an Australia-London run. In 1937 the two airlines formed Qantas Empire Airways. QANTAS Limited continued to fly up until October 1947, when a sudden decision was made to liquidate the company.
