Qantas reveals Indigenous art design on new A220 plane


Qantas has unveiled a bold look for its new A220 aircraft, swapping the signature red livery in favour of blue and green Indigenous art.

The new plane features the artwork of Pitjantjatjara artist Maringka Baker, with the aircraft named after the artwork, Minyma Kutjara Tjukurpa – The Two Sisters Creation Story.

The new QantasLink aircraft will join the fleet in early 2024 for a Melbourne to Canberra service as Qantas begins to replace the current fleet of Boeing 717s. More economical to run, the new planes will offer 10 business class seats and 127 economy seats.


“These aircraft have the potential to change the way our customers travel across the country, with the ability to connect any two cities or towns in Australia,” said Qantas Group CEO Vanessa Hudson.

“That means faster and more convenient travel for business trips and exciting new possibilities for holiday travel.

“A whole new fleet type also means a lot of opportunities for our people to operate and look after these aircraft.”
