Qantas gradually expanded, building its own planes and starting the much-needed Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia to serve the large Australian outback.

Their fleet consists of the following aircraft Airbus A330-200, Airbus A330-300, Airbus A380-800, Boeing 737-300, Boeing 737-400, Boeing 737-800, Boeing 747-300, Boeing 747-400, Boeing 747-400ER, Boeing 767-300ER, Boeing 787-8, Boeing 787-9.
