Qantas Empire Airways logo

Qantas Empire Airways Limited (QEA) was formed in 1934 as merge of Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited (Qantas) and Britain's Imperial Airways. Each partner held 49%, with two per cent in the hands of an independent arbitrator. The new airline commenced operations in December 1934 flying between Brisbane and Darwin using obsolescent de Havilland DH.50 and de Havilland DH.61 biplanes. QEA flew internationally from May 1935, when the service from Darwin was extended to Singapore using newer de Havilland DH.86 Express. Imperial Airways operated the rest of the service through to London. In July 1938 this operation was replaced by a thrice weekly flying boat service using Shorts S.23 Empire flying boats. American-built Consolidated PBY Catalinas were operated too on local routes. In 1947, QEA was nationalised, with the Australian Labor government, and the company renamed as Qantas Airways.
