Picture: First Qantas Airbus A380 painted by Korean Air

Seoul, South Korea - Korean Air has completed the painting of the first of four Qantas Airbus A380 with the airline’s new corporate livery.

The superjumbo registered VH-OQJ appeared out of paint shop at Gimhae International Airport.

Qantas inked an agreement with Korean Air in July 2018 for repainting of four Airbus A380.

The remaining three planes will receive the new corporate livery from 2020.

Australian flag carrier first revealed its new livery in 2017, characterizing a streamlined lawless kangaroo on the tail, a new Qantas writing on the airframe with slimmer fonts.

Besides a silver band which is extending from the tail to the rear of the fuselage, a kangaroo has been added to the inside of the wingtips.

It is the fifth livery of Qantas since the carrier introduced the first kangaroo logo in 1944.
