Qantas’ brilliant new safety video shows ‘Aussies being Aussies’

Qantas has released its latest inflight safety video featuring everyday Australians sharing the true Aussie spirit in beautiful destinations around the world.

Playing cricket on a rooftop in Tokyo, riding in the front seat of a taxi in New York, indulging in a “Tim Tam Slam” in Johannesburg and barracking for the Wallabies in the heart of All Blacks territory in Auckland are just some of the true-blue moments that feature in the clip.

Set to a modern take of I Still Call Australia Home, the video starts with a young woman saying farewell to her family at Melbourne Airport and ends with an off-duty Qantas pilot at Cottesloe Beach in Western Australia.


All throughout the clip, Aussies are providing safety instructions for passengers travelling on Qantas aircraft.


CEO Alison Webster said the airline’s safety video was a creative way to share the spirit of Australia with customers.

“The primary purpose of these videos is to communicate an important safety message, and we know from our previous efforts that beautiful locations with a touch of humour is a great way to get people’s attention each time they fly,” Ms Webster said.

“This video lets us show off some of the amazing places you can travel on our network, and acts as a quick induction on Australian culture for visitors overseas about to fly here on a Qantas aircraft.”

The new video will begin screening across Qantas domestic and international flights from April.
