G’Day! Welcome to Qantas Virtual Group. We’re Infinite Flight’s most renowned Virtual Airline for the past decade. Ever since our establishment in 2012, we’ve been hard at work creating memories, friendships, and showcasing true Australian hospitality. We’re tremendously proud of the progress we’ve made, and all the QVGians we’ve shaped from the ground up. Now it’s time to buckle-in and unlock the next era of Virtual Aviation.

When I joined Qantas Virtual Group two years ago, I was stunned by the level of respect, professionalism, and committment that this VA operated with. Since then, I’ve seen Qantas Virtual Group reach new heights, thanks to my fellow staff members and QVG Pilots who have made this an honorary organization.

If you’re searching for a Virtual Airline that values you and your skillset, Qantas Virtual Group is the place to be. Our various ranks and positions allow any type of pilot to unlock their potential and motivate the community at large. Our vibrant community has a focus on upholding an admirable environment where our pilots can engage and interact as passionate flyers. With a decade of experience behind us, we’re ready to face the next era of aviation. Will you join us?

See you onboard! ✈️

“QVG’s community is one of the only communities that I can say is undoubtedly fun, from the moment I joined I was showered with nothing but friendliness from the Pilots and Staff. As a Staff Member, you’re usually expected to be professional but once I was onboarded, we were able to blend the seriousness of work and the humorous side of our day-to-day life and have an efficient and fun work environment. I couldn’t think of a better VA to be in!”
