The airline ceased transmission under its own livery on 28 July 2006 but has continued to operate flights for Qantas under a 'wet leasing' agreement. This means Australian Airlines operates flights for Qantas using its own crew / cost base but under the Qantas brand. Qantas decided to discontinue the public use of the Australian Airlines brand in favour of having Jetstar as its leisure carrier.

History

The airline was established in 2001 and started operations on 27 October 2002, reusing the name Qantas gained when it merged with former Australian domestic carrier Australian Airlines in 1994. Its initial network of flights concentrated on leisure tourism between Queensland and Japan. Subsequent expansion brought on other leisure destinations throughout Southeast Asia. In 2005 Australian Airlines managed to earn a SKYTRAX "4 Star Airline" rating, despite its "low cost airline tag". However, by 2006, rising fuel costs and dropping passenger numbers caught up with the airline. On 12 April 2006 Geoff Dixon, CEO of the Qantas group, announced that the group would be focusing on the replacement by the Qantas and Jetstar brands, and as such Australian Airlines would cease tranmission and become Jetstar under its own brand by July 28, 2006. The airline's aircraft will be painted back into the Qantas & Jetstar livery, but will continue to be operated by Australian Airlines under a wet lease agreement.
