Former Air New Zealand executive Cam Wallace has been appointed to lead Qantas’ international and freight division, taking over from Andrew David who will retire in September.

The move comes as the carrier eyes a return to full capacity across its domestic and international divisions.

“Cam Wallace is one of the best airline executives in the region,” said Qantas CEO Alan Joyce.

“He brings over two decades of airline experience including his long career at Air New Zealand, with responsibilities spanning sales, revenue management, market development, alliances and cargo.”

Joyce thanked David for his decade of service with the company at both Qantas and Jetstar.

“Andrew has contributed a huge amount during his 10 years across,” he said. “His leadership of Qantas’ domestic, international and freight businesses has been pivotal, especially during the incredible challenge of putting the airline into hibernation and bringing it back again.”

The move has reignited speculation over who might replace Joyce when he decides to move on, with chief financial officer Vanessa Hudson, loyalty section head Olivia Wirth and Jetstar boss Stephanie Tully all thought to be contenders.
