‘It’s really a tribute to a century of our people, the changing styles, and our innovation,’ says Qantas chief.

Qantas’ new safety video is, as it most often is, a winner. And this one was a long time in the making.

The video lasts more than eight minutes, took 12 months to make and tracks the Aussie carrier’s evolution over the past 10 decades.

It features aircraft, uniforms and fashion, and music from each decade, with a focus on how Qantas contributed to the evolution of air travel and Australia’s national identity.

“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 Qantas Group chief Alan Joyce.

“It’s really a tribute to a century of our people, the changing styles, and our innovation. The one thing that has never changed is our commitment to safety.”

    I thoroughly enjoyed this, BUT one common flaw in all advertising is when speaking with vital information, the music doesn’t fade away enough. Where is the pink sea?
