JACKMAN ON BOARD AS THE MAN FROM QANTAS

QANTAS has enlisted Hugh Jackman as a global ambassador, the latest in a star studded line up of partnerships to spruik the airline.

The award-winning actor will promote Australia as a travel destination of choice to the world, as well as work with Qantas on a number of community projects.

Jackman says he was proud to align himself with a brand that represents the best of Australia.

"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," Jackman says.

"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 in the US, Asia and beyond.

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

"I will also be working directly with Qantas employees to build on the fantastic community work they already do and I can't wait to get started later this year."

Jackman has a career spanning 30 years from his early days in prison drama Corelli to his screen and stage successes including X-Men, The Boy from Oz and soon to be released Pan.

Other big names who have signed on to promote the brand include John Travolta, Miranda Kerr and Greg Norman.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce welcomed Jackman into the fold and says the airline was thrilled to secure him as an ambassador.
