Qantas seeks start-ups to help with it innovation agenda

Australian airline Qantas has launched Avro Accelerator, an initiative giving start-ups the chance to work with the carrier’s mentors and pitch ideas to streamline the travel experience, design smarter ways of working and help solve business problems. 

Up to 10 teams will ultimately be chosen for the program. As well as access to industry mentors, participants will be able to tap into some of the airline's operational data, technology platforms and anonymised customer insights to bring their ideas to life. 

Alan Joyce, chief executive, Qantas Group said the Avro Accelerator was an opportunity for smart new business thinkers to shape the future of travel. 

“We’re proud of our track record as innovators and early adopters and we think there’s much more to come, so we’re asking Australian and international start-ups to join us as we unearth the next big ideas,” said Joyce.
