Plane speaking: Qantas backing Australian Olympians


Qantas has thrown support behind the Australian Olympic and Paralympic Teams by unveiling a special ‘GO AUSTRALIA’ message on either side of one of its Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

The Australian flag carrier has commissioned the specially created graphic that aims to showcase Australian pride on the international stage ahead of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris.

Qantas Group CEO Vanessa Hudson said Qantas and the Australian Olympic team have more than 70 years of shared history.

“Qantas has a long and proud history of supporting the Australian Olympic and Paralympic teams, from first flying Olympic athletes to the London Games in 1948 to our engineers designing custom cushions and support devices for our Australian Paralympians to travel comfortably on long-haul sectors,” she said.

“We are so proud to support our Australian athletes and supporters to get to the Games once again and hope our special cheer squad 787 will help spur on our teams and supporters to put on a great show in Paris.”

Australian Olympic Team Chef de Mission for Paris 2024 Anna Meares welcomed Qantas’ ongoing support for Australian athletes.

“Qantas has been supporting Australian Olympic dreams for generations,” Meares said.

“We are thrilled Qantas will be proudly sharing their support of Australian Olympians on their 787 Dreamliner.

“As an Olympian, flying on that Qantas plane home from a Games, to meet friends and family in the Qantas hangar welcome home, is such a special memory. I’m looking forward to our 2024 Olympic team making their own Qantas memories on their journey to and from the Paris Games.”

In addition to unveiling its team support, Qantas is preparing to launch its new Perth to Paris route next month and this weekend will resume its direct flights from Perth to Rome for the third year running.

It is the only airline to offer direct flights between Australia and continental Europe.
