As Qantas prepares for the retirement of its stalwart Boeing 747 aircraft from its fleet, the Australian carrier has outlined a series of domestic services that guests will be able to book as part of the jumbo’s swansong.

The Boeing 747, also known as the Queen of the Skies, has been an integral part of the Qantas fleet for almost 50 years. But as Qantas takes delivery of the next-generation of long-haul aircraft, the 747s are set to leave its fleet by the end of 2020.

“The 747 has a special place in the hearts of many passengers and we’re delighted to announce that we’ll be operating a number of domestic services between November and February 2020, giving customers the opportunity to fly on the jumbo without the need for a passport,” Qantas said.

The upcoming domestic Boeing 747 services scheduled are:

  • SYD-BNE QF524 9 Nov 2019
  • SYD-ADL QF743 23 Nov 2019
  • SYD-MEL QF417 31 Dec 2019
  • SYD-MEL QF439 15 Feb 2020
  • BNE-SYD QF529 11 Nov 2019
