Did you know that we have over 150 aircraft in our fleet, each with its own individual name. Each of our aircraft are named after Australian beaches of bodies of water, which means you’re likely to see some iconic locations written on our aircraft the next time you’re at the airport.
Some of our aircraft are named after the most famous beaches in Australia, including an A330 named after Sydney’s Manly Beach, and the famous Surfers Paradise Beach in Queensland, which was given to one of our Boeing 737s.
We’ve also just announced that one of our new aircraft will be named Princess Charlotte Bay – both the name of the new Royal Princess and a bay in far north Queensland. You can see what the aircraft will look like in the image we've created on our Facebook page ahead of its arrival in November.
Can you identify which state some of the other notable aircraft names in our fleet are from:
- Wategos Beach
- Brighton Beach
- Emu Bay
- Jervis Bay
- Palm Beach
- Airlie Beach
- Bells Beach
- Binalong Bay
