Australian airlines, Qantas becomes the latest voyager in the NFT world. Qantas has just announced the launch of NFTs, dropping in mid 2022.
The world’s third oldest airlines also announced that each digital asset will be unique and can be bought, owned, sold or collected.
Qantas Group chief customer officer Stephanie Tully said, “A Qantas NFT collection allows us to engage the next generation of aviation and digital art enthusiasts, leveraging blockchain technology to celebrate our heritage and future.”

Qantas also clarified the fact that all the NFTs will be released using net zero emissions on low-carbon platforms and using carbon offsetting.
Qantas is the second airline in the world to drop NFTs. AirBaltic, the flag carrier of Latvia, was the first.
