Qantas Airways and Twentieth Century Fox Television announced the partnership to bring the ABC Series to Australia last month. The airline is hoping the episode will deliver high ratings that will give Australia, "a huge boost to local tourism."
To celebrate the show's arrival, Qantas also hosted a party for the show's stars at Sydney’s Sebel Pier One last night. To get into the spirit of the trip Julie Bowen, who plays Claire Dunphy on the show, wore a dress designed by Martin Grant - the creator of Qantas’ staff uniforms - to the event.
Modern Family's special Australia episode is expected to air later this season.
