The Qantas chairman’s move up the Melbourne property ladder comes amid interesting times for the airline after boss Alan Joyce announced he will step down early from his role.

Mr Joyce’s retirement came after the national carrier faced scrutiny in recent weeks over allegations it sold tickets for “ghost flights” and lobbied the federal government to reject Qatar Airways’ bid to increase flights to Australia.

Vanessa Hudson is now the managing director and group chief executive as of September 6.
