Sydney -- Qantas announced today it would undertake a $10 million
program of improvements to its domestic terminal at Canberra Airport to
commence in February 2008.

Qantas Executive General Manager Services, Curtis Davies, said the
changes would provide enhanced facilities for passengers, aircraft and
baggage services in the period leading up to the completion of new
Multi User Terminal facilities.

The improvements at Qantas' Canberra terminal include:

* expanded check-in facilities;

* installation of an additional security lane, providing extra space
for periods of peak demand;

* expansion of the baggage system to provide added capacity, improved
access and quicker delivery times;

* installation of an additional aerobridge allowing greater capacity
during periods of peak demand.

Mr Davies said Qantas would also expand and upgrade the Qantas Club and
open a new dedicated business lounge in late 2008.

"The new lounge will offer a more spacious layout, more private seating
arrangements, social areas, enhanced food and business services, work
suites, complimentary wireless internet and shower facilities."

Mr Davies said Qantas had entered into a long-term arrangement with
Canberra International Airport to participate in the development of the
Multi User Terminal. Qantas would be the largest airline to operate
from the Multi User Terminal.

"The new Multi User Terminal, and its state-of-the-art facilities,
would give Qantas access to additional check-in counters, aerobridges
and gate lounges, improved baggage facilities and new and larger
lounges," Mr Davies said.

Mr Davies said having a state-of-the-art terminal and facilities
including baggage system and aerobridges would help underpin Qantas'
continued growth in the Canberra market.

"Canberra has experienced strong domestic passenger growth for a number
of years which has placed pressure on the airport's infrastructure. The
Multi User Terminal will provide a sustainable long-term solution for
the airport."
