The large variety of duties available offer pilots a flexible working environment with the ability to work throughout our extensive network which is always expanding into new and exciting destinations.

Although QantasLink is a large company whose network covers a vast number of destinations over many states, every pilot becomes part of our close knit team. Every member within this team is valued for their contribution to our company's visions and values.

If you are keen to join our Pilot team, based on your experience you have three pathways to register your interest:

QantasLink/UNSW Partnership

QantasLink and UNSW have partnered to offer an exciting new career path for aspiring pilots. The program is designed for pilots who do not currently meet the First Officer direct entry minimum criteria. This new training path will provide motivated candidates with the necessary skills to transition into an airline environment.

Students who enrol in either the UNSW Bachelor of Aviation Flying or the Graduate Diploma in Flying may apply to become a QantasLink approved student. All approved students will then enrol in the Graduate Diploma in Advanced Flying which will enable them to be considered for a First Officer position with QantasLink. Further details of the QantasLink/UNSW partnership can be found at

To become a QantasLink Approved Student, all applicants must have an unrestricted legal right to work in Australia.

We have some exciting new opportunities for trainee first officers to join our team. Be a part of our future, in a role that offers excellent training and progression.
