Former Australian air Express 737-300F Freighter VH-XML has returned to Australia after being repainting in Christchurch in its new Qantas Freight colours.

Australian air Express is being rebranded Qantas Freight after Qantas acquired Australia Post’s 50 per cent share of night freight/express parcel operator late last year.

VH-XML joins a 767-300F in Qantas Freight colours (although the 767 features an all-red tail without the Qantas kangaroo). The Qantas Freight fleet is also set to bolstered by a 747-400ERF late this year.
