Qantas innovation with ultra long haul

Since the last Concorde flight from British Airways landed for the last time, you’d be forgiven for thinking that air travel hasn’t really got any better – at least when it comes to speed and the time we spend in the air. The experience in flight has changed dramatically. Long gone are the days of smoking at 40,000 feet, or having to watch the same TV screen as everyone else.

Over the last few years, there has undoubtedly been a focus on the expansion of mega-hubs such as Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong and London for interconnecting flights. The double decker giant A380 from Airbus heralded a new era of travel, however things are about to change yet again in a very big way.

I joined ABC to talk about the innovation being led by Qantas, dubbed ‘Project Sunrise’ that is set to change the face of global air travel in a way not seen for the last two decades.
