Nick Crabb, Manager Leisure Sales UK & Ireland, and Hazel Young, Ireland Manager, hosted the evening – with plenty of kangaroos and cockatoos (cuddly toy versions!) on offer in the prize draw.

The airline’s continuing close ties with British Airways were indicated by the attendance of Simon Daly and Graham Aldren.

Nick and Hazel emphasised the advantages and diversity of the Qantas network and looked to the Irish travel trade for their continued support of the airline into 2012.
