Our partnership with Qantas will develop an integrated, holistic and evidence-based approach to airline travel and health.
Our researchers are working with Qantas to provide integrated health and wellbeing advice, education and research in a range of areas that have the potential to dramatically improve the experience of long-haul flying, including:
As Qantas prepares to launch its transformative Project Sunrise, it’s working with the University’s multidisciplinary Charles Perkins Centre on a unique evidence-based approach to improve customers' experience of long-haul flights.
Already, the University's partnership with Qantas has led to the development of a 4D planning system designed by our academics that reduces CO2 emissions and fuel costs with flight path optimisation.
This collaborative partnership between Qantas and our researchers is investigating ways to optimise environmental and bahavioural factors, with the aim of improving the customer experience before, during and after long-haul travel.
A group of long-haul Qantas customers, including Frequent Flyers, will take part in an in-flight trial as part of a world first collaboration on health and wellness in the air between the airline and the University of Sydney.
Unveiled this week, the new flight planning system is the result of a world-first, four-year project conducted at the University’s Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR). The team comprising four aeronautical research fellows, 3 PhD candidates and 10 software engineers worked on designing new system models.
