As a gesture of support for the Australian Olympic and Paralympic Teams, Qantas has unveiled one of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft sporting a special message.

The Australian flag carrier has shared images of the B787 aircraft with the message “Go Australia!” emblazoned on either side of its fuselage.

According to Qantas, the specially-created graphic showcases Australian pride on an international stage and captures the essence of the iconic green and gold Aussie spirit.

This cements the Flying Kangaroo’s proud position as the official carrier of the 2024 Australian Olympic and Paralympic Teams, the carrier said.

“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,” Qantas Group CEO Vanessa Hudson said in a press statement.

“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,” Hudson added.

Australian Paralympic Team Chef de Mission Kate McLoughlin has said that their relationship with Qantas is of great importance to the team.

“Qantas offers flexibility around the travel requirements of people with a disability and the equipment they carry, and it’s great the way Paralympics Australia and Qantas collaborate to understand the needs of our team,” McLoughlin said.

“The flight home from the Games is always special. Qantas has delivered our Paralympians on charter flights home from London 2012, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020, and we’re thrilled that our team will again be flown home to Australia by Qantas after the Paris Paralympics,” McLoughlin added.
