V8 Supercars take flight as Virgin Australia announced as official domestic airline

V8 Supercars and Virgin Australia

Virgin Australia and V8 Supercars have announced a partnership that will see us become the official domestic airline of V8 Supercars.

We will transport V8 Supercar staff and the majority of teams to the 15 Australian events across the country and one in New Zealand, as well as offering motorsport fans great savings for flights and holiday packages when they want to travel to those events!

V8 Supercar CEO David Malone said the deal was a fantastic arrangement for V8 Supercars and fans, again elevating the sport to one of the big players in Australia.

“V8 Supercars is very pleased to have Virgin Australia as our official domestic airline. This partnership is an ideal way to bring V8 fans closer to the race, with Virgin Australia delivering great value and service to our loyal fan base.

This is the first step in what we hope to be a long association with Virgin Australia which is a perfect fit with our international carrier Etihad who have been with us for the past year.”

The 2012 V8 Supercar Championship calendar currently has 16 events scheduled, which will mainly take place around Australia, including destinations from Adelaide, to Melbourne and Philip Island, Bathurst, Gold Coast, Darwin and more. Virgin Australia offers daily services to each city from key ports in Australia, enabling V8 Supercar fans from around the country to travel to their favourite track. Blue Holidays, our holiday program, will also be offering tailored V8 packages, including airfares, accommodation and tickets, in the coming weeks so stay tuned for some great deals!
