Qantas video used to "celebrate Australia"

Qantas has released a new safety video that features friendly Australians and amazing destinations that showcase the country as the ultimate place to visit.

The video will be screened on Qantas flights and the airline company predicts that it will reach an estimated 30 billion people from all around the world.

What travellers will see when watching the video is Australians from all walks of life who will take passengers through safety instructions that are set against the backdrop of stunning locations all across the country.

Some of the things you can expect to see if you're travelling on a Qantas flight include a life-jacket demonstration at the Bondi Icebergs.

You'll also see a brace position demonstration during a yoga class taking place on Hamilton Island.

Other sights in the video include Yarra Valley winery and Josephine Falls in Queensland among many others.

Qantas will introduce the safety video across its domestic and international fleet of planes alongside its website and other online channels.

Despite being a safety video, it is very much a new kind of tourism campaign, which is supported by Tourism Australia, who worked on the video with the airline.

The two companies will be working together over the next year and will promote the locations featured for benefit of local tourism in each area.

In particular, Qantas hope to benefit from Tourism Australia's social media marketing power, which it hopes will see the video reach several more millions of people all around the world.

Speaking on the video, Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said that it was a unique platform to boost local tourism in Australia.

He commented: "We've experimented with different settings for our safety videos over the years, but this time we saw an opportunity to celebrate Australia itself.

Mr Joyce added that the airline is "confident that it's going to grab people's attention" as well as hold their interest on important flight safety information.
