Qantas to organize 747 Farewell Flights


Qantas is organizing three special flights as a farewell celebration for its last Boeing 747, which is set to retire.


Australia’s national carrier says it wants to provide Australians with an opportunity to say goodbye to the much loved ‘Queen of the Skies’ ahead of its retirement from the Qantas fleet. The airline will operate 3 one-hour flights, departing from Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane. Employees and customers will have one final chance to fly on the aircraft.


The flights will go on sale at midday on Wednesday 8 July on and will operate on Monday 13 July (Sydney), Wednesday 15 July (Brisbane) and Friday 17 July (Canberra). Economy fares cost $400 and a small number of Business Class tickets will be available for $747 with additional extras included.

The final 747-400 in the fleet will depart Sydney at approximately 2pm on 22 July 2020 as flight QF7474. Prior to its final departure on the 22nd July, Qantas will host a hangar farewell event for employees.
