Qantas has lauded a new $351.7 million government funding agreement for Kakadu National Park as exactly the bold infrastructure investment the Northern Territory needs.

Andrew David, Chief Executive Officer of the national carrier’s domestic arm, congratulated the Australian and Northern Territory governments on the funding deal sealed today, and said the 'large and bold investment in infrastructure' would boost domestic and international visitors to the region.
