The latest Qantas aircraft safety video stars friendly Aussies and stunning destinations across our great land, but not a kangaroo or koala in sight.
Launching across Qantas' domestic and international fleet from February, the new video will also feature on the airline's online channels. Check it out below.
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said the video was a unique platform to promote the local tourism industry and capture the confident-but-relaxed Aussie personality that visitors tend to fall in love with.
“We’ve experimented with different settings for our safety videos over the years, but this time we saw an opportunity to celebrate Australia itself.” Mr Joyce said.
“The result is something that we believe is really special and powerful, but warm, funny and down to earth at the same time, because it’s about everyday Australians.
“We’re confident that it’s going to grab people’s attention and get them focused on the safety information that every Qantas customer needs to know.
“It’s a video that people can really connect with, and there’s an opportunity to expand its reach by sharing it online and through social media – giving it a dual purpose as promotion for Australian tourism,” added Mr Joyce.
“Qantas has always been the biggest private sector supporter of Australian tourism and we’re delighted to be working with Tourism Australia on the social media campaign that goes with the new video.
“With the headwind of a lower dollar we have the potential to create a new tourism boom in this country. I’m proud that Qantas is leading the way, not just through our global marketing efforts, but by adding flights and seats and expanding our partnerships with the world’s biggest airlines.”
