Qantas unveils special Christmas themed aircraft.

Qantas is set to spread holiday cheer with the unveiling of their special Christmas-themed aircraft, the QantasLink Q400 ‘Dasher-8’. This festive addition to the airline’s fleet promises to bring a touch of Christmas magic to passengers throughout the month of December.

The Q400, with the registration VH-QOW, has been affectionately christened as ‘Dasher-8’. In a creative twist, the airline’s iconic 737 will also undergo a holiday makeover, becoming ‘Roo-dolph’ for the season. This name cleverly combines the identity of Santa’s lead reindeer with a nod to Qantas’ distinctive ‘Flying Kangaroo’ tail logo.

The grand reveal took place at the QantasLink hangar at Brisbane Airport (BNE) on December 4, 2023. Dasher-8 emerged resplendent in its newly applied livery, featuring a striking design of a large red sleigh and kangaroos. Adding to the festive ambiance, Christmas carols will serenade passengers throughout the boarding process on both Dasher-8 and Roo-Dolph.

Members will now get access to exclusive pre-sales and special offers, as well as new entertainment packages that combine event tickets with flights and accommodations.
