We told you about the newest safety video from Air New Zealand, and now we will pop over to Australia because Qantas is also sprucing up their in-flight intros. The airline's latest idea to creatively inform passengers how to buckle their seat belts doesn't use celebrity voices, but instead uses home grown Olympic athletes.
The Red Roo has enlisted famous Australian Olympic and Paralympic athletes to demonstrate brace positions and how to find an exit in the event of an emergency. Since the airline sponsors the entire team of runners, swimmers and other sports people, it make sense to highlight their accomplishments. All the athletes don the national green and gold uniform and, frankly, it clashes with the eyes a bit too much.
The video itself is a creative way of refreshing what can be a boring aspect of travel. It caught our eyes on a recent trip and made us smile during the 4 minutes of taxiing out to our runway. So, it's not as cutesy as the one from the Kiwis, but it still gets us super excited for the Games to start!
