About John Travolta & Qantas

The Hollywood A-lister has been a Qantas Ambassador since 2002 and flies a Qantas Boeing 707. He was struck by Qantas' impressive safety record and the fact that it flew the longest routes in the world. Having learned to fly light aircraft in his teens, John began to buy aircraft in his 20s, eventually acquiring an ex-Qantas Boeing 707. Following the September 11 terrorist attacks of 2001, John wanted to play a role in fostering goodwill and encouraging people to travel again. He approached Qantas and the idea for the Spirit of Friendship tour was born. Announcing the tour in Los Angeles in June 2002, John was presented with his 747-400 'wings', having completed extensive training at Qantas' Sydney headquarters and with Boeing in Seattle, and became an official Qantas "Ambassador-at-Large".

The tour started on 1 July 2002, with John piloting his Boeing 707, painted in its original 1960s Qantas branding and livery. Taking off from Los Angeles, the tour visited Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, Rome, Paris, Frankfurt and New York. It involved about 80 flying hours and covered more than 35,000 nautical miles.
