Hollywood star John Travolta will visit Dubai next week for the first time to embark on a week long program of touring and corporate hospitality with Australian airline Qantas Airways.

The Qantas ambassador will explore the carrier’s new international hub for flights to London and Australia.

 “I’m really excited, I’ve wanted to experience Dubai for many years now, and the launch of Qantas services to Dubai has given me the perfect opportunity to do so. I’ll be travelling on the Qantas A380 from London and then I’ll spend the week touring around the emirate. I’ll also be working with Qantas to showcase the airline and what makes Qantas special – its luxurious cabins and premium service,” said Travolta.

“I always love showcasing Qantas to the world. As one of the world’s leading long distance carriers, Qantas takes the best of Australia to the world, and the best of the world to Australia,” he continued.

Qantas Middle East & North Africa General Manager, Rohan Garnett, said: “John Travolta has been part of the Qantas family for over ten years. He’s a highly qualified pilot with 747-400 “wings” and flies his own ex-Qantas Boeing 707 around the world, painted in its original 1960s livery.”

“We’ll also be providing customers with the opportunity to meet John Travolta while he is here with a host of competition and events,” said Garnett.

Qantas is inviting fans to win tickets to meet Travolta during his trip to Dubai on Thursday 12 September.

To enter, tune into the Breakfast Show on Dubai 92FM with ‘Catboy & Geordiebird’ between 1-5 September or visit Facebook.com/qantas between 8-11 September.
