Calling all aviation enthusiasts – it’s time to get excited! Qantas has just released tickets to a 747 charter joyride fundraising flight to the Australian International Air Show at Avalon.

Lucky travellers will be able to fly the Queen of the Skies to Avalon for an exclusive, fully inclusive day trip to the Australian International Air Show on 2 March, 2019 for Qantas’ third drought fundraising flight in conjunction with Rural Aid.

What’s included

For $747, your all-inclusive trip includes:

  • Return flights on 2 March 2019 between Sydney and Avalon on board Qantas 747 – VH-OEB
  • Low level fly by of the runway on approach to Avalon
  • Single day entry to the 2019 Australian International Air Show
  • Sparkling wine breakfast in the Sydney Domestic Business Lounge on departure including live entertainment
  • Inflight auctions
  • Morning tea inflight refreshments
  • Private lunch at the Air Show with some special aviation guests
  • Gift bag and souvenir lanyard
  • Dinner and drinks (including alcoholic beverages) on return flight

If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also receive status credits (20 each way, or 40 in total), plus Zone 1 points (actual number of points depends on your status).

I’ve previously attended one of these flights, and they are fantastic fun (and great value, too, when you consider all the inclusions). Plus, all proceeds go directly to the Qantas Drought Relief program, helping to support Australian farmers.

I’ve personally secured my ticket to this fabulous day out, and look forward to seeing you there if you choose to attend.

However, if you’re interested in booking, you’ll need to act very fast, as only 150 seats are available for sale. Previous Qantas charter day flights have sold out on the same day. You can access the booking page for the Qantas 747 charter flight here.

Will you be joining the Qantas 747 charter flight to the Avalon Airshow?
