Travel News 20 Oct 2015

Qantas is getting nostalgic as the 95th birthday celebrations keep on coming.

Qantas will paint a second Boeing 737-800 in a retro livery as part of celebrations marking the national carrier’s 95th year in the air.

Qantas’ Group executive for brand, marketing and corporate affairs, Olivia Wirth, said the second retro livery aircraft would build on the popularity of the first historical livery unveiled last year.

“We are very excited to be announcing the commissioning of Retro Roo II following the phenomenal response we received from the community and our people when we introduced the first Retro Roo with its classic 1970s iconic last November,” she said.
