Hugh Jackman named as Qantas ambassador

Qantas has announced Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman as a global ambassador.

The X-Men and Les Misérables star will also work with Australia’s national carrier on community projects in the country.

Jackman said: “I travel a lot and like all Aussies, I get a buzz whenever I see the familiar red tail and the kangaroo logo, no matter where I am in the world. 

“Qantas has always had a vital role in promoting Australia as a tourism destination and I’m looking forward to playing my part as we work together to showcase our amazing cities, landscapes and experiences.

“What I also love about Qantas is the role it plays in the community. It’s inspiring to see an Australian company stand up for causes that make a difference and I know it’s something that the Qantas team and its employees are really passionate about.

“The Qantas projects I will be getting involved with will create opportunities for Australians to learn, to work and to reach their potential.”

Qantas chief executive, Alan Joyce, said: “Hugh represents everything that the world loves about Australians and he has used his enormous international success to promote Australia as well as highlight causes that are close to his heart.

“We will build on the work both Qantas and Hugh are already doing and together we believe we have the capacity to create some truly life-changing opportunities.”
