Qantas and Charles Perkins Centre Commit to Wellness

Aiming to develop a new approach to inflight wellness ahead of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner flights, Qantas has recently partnered with The University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre.

Researchers across the fields of nutrition, physical activity, sleep and complex systems modelling will work with the carrier to develop strategies to counteract jetlag, onboard exercise, menus, service timing, and other concepts to ensure well-being.

Commenting on the collaboration, Steve Simpson, academic director, Charles Perkins Centre, pinpointed, “There is the potential for extraordinary health, science and engineering discoveries and innovations to come out of this research partnership, which will also provide the evidence-base needed for Qantas to implement strategies to further improve how people feel after a long-haul flight.”
