The airline is moving some of its international fleet to domestic routes, which it said would create hundreds of jobs.
About 30,000 Qantas and Jetstar employees lost their jobs in March last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The latter has since expanded its number of domestic routes to 58 – servicing 21 domestic destinations – as the airline attempts to make up for the shortfall in revenue from international flights.
