Australian airline Qantas will launch its first Aboriginal theme-inspired aircraft livery in nearly 10 years in November 2013.
Featuring the work of a Western Australian indigenous artist, the new livery will be part of the airline’s ‘Flying Art’ series and is scheduled to appear on a new Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
The livery has been developed in partnership with Adelaide’s Balarinji Design Studios.
Qantas introduced its first aircraft with indigenous livery – Wunala Dreaming – in 1994. The Boeing 747-400ER featured motifs from Northern and Central Australia.
Qantas later also introduced 2 more indigenous art inspired liveries – Nalanji Dreaming in 1995 and Yananyi Dreaming in 2002.
