Qantas unveils its epic new safety video: A nostalgic look across the airline's last 100 years

Qantas has unveiled a new safety video that highlights the history of the Australian carrier.

The video, which comes in at a mighty 8-minutes and 20-seconds, features iconic aircraft, fashion and aviation milestones to create a 100-year time lapse from the 1920s to present day. It was filmed over three weeks across seven destinations including Longreach, Sydney's Rose Bay, HARS Museum at Wollongong, Melbourne, Brisbane Airport, and the pink lakes of Hutt Lagoon in Western Australia.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the briefing shows the important moments in the company's history.

"This safety video is a look back at the different styles of aircraft, service and uniforms that have been part of our long history. And it calls out the contribution Qantas and its people have made to aviation, like the invention of the slide raft, as well as the national carrier's role in connecting Australia to the world," said Joyce.

"It's really a tribute to a century of our people, the changing styles, and our innovation."

The new safety video will screen onboard all Qantas international and domestic flights from March 1.
