The First Ever Qantas Airbus A380 Arrives In Orlando
Earlier today, QF17 from Sydney to Los Angeles to Orlando touched down marking Qantas A380’s first ever visit to the Florida airport.
The A380, VH-OQE, has already left Orlando with no passengers and is currently approaching Los Angeles to be stationed on a flight back to Australia.
- This was a special charter flight for Woolworths, a large Australian supermarket chain.
- Woolworths had a giveaway for 116 winners that could take up to four people including themselves to spend a few days in Orlando’s Disney World.
- Each prize includes a five day Walt Disney World Resort ticket with the “Park Hopper Plus” option, a five night accommodation at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, four $500 USD Disney gift cards and “an exclusive Qantas experience, with return chartered flights and transfers to Orlando”.
This is not the last time Qantas’ A380 will visit Orlando, so if you missed today’s flight, get ready!
In less than 5 days on January 24, Qantas will once again fly its A380 to Orlando to pick up the passengers to return to Sydney and beyond.
While the arrival time is unknown, the A380 is scheduled to depart from Orlando at 6:00 p.m.

Must’ve been an amazing experience for spotters in the area!
Who knows, Orlando could one day be on Qantas’ Project Sunrise list for nonstop flights. 😃
