Virgin Blue Launches Gold Coast Suns Aircraft
COOLANGATTA, Friday 18 February 2011: The Virgin Blue Group of Airlines today launched an official Gold Coast SUNS branded Boeing 737 aircraft to mark their official sponsorship of the team.
The Gold Coast SUNS team today travelled on the aircraft, departing Coolangatta for Sydney to compete in their first ever official game on Saturday night as part of the NAB AFL Cup.
Virgin Blue Group Executive Commercial Liz Savage said Virgin Blue was very proud to partner with the SUNS and the branded plane was a flying symbol of strong support for the team.
“We wish the SUNS all the very best for their first ever match and want them to know that Virgin Blue and the Queensland community are right behind them for this important day.
“As the new official airline of the AFL we recently also launched another 737 aircraft that proudly displays the AFL brand and the logos of each AFL club.
"This is just one of the many ways that we will support the Gold Coast SUNS and the AFL through our new partnership and we look forward to continuing to provide the AFL with great service on our extensive network,” Ms. Savage said.
