Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Wednesday, 7 February 2007

In one of its biggest sponsorship agreements to date, Virgin Blue Airlines has signed a three year partnership with the QR Queensland Reds.

Its the first time the airline has entered into rugby union sponsorship and reflects Virgin Blues evolving sports sponsorship strategy.

The partnership got off to a winning start with the Reds sterling 25-16 season opening win over the Hurricanes at Suncorp Stadium on the weekend.

Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey said, This is tremendously exciting for Virgin Blue, we are a proud Queensland based company and we can think of no better way of paying back the community support we have received since our launch by both flying and supporting the home team. Its a win-win arrangement and we look forward to helping the Reds continue their successful start to the new season.

While Virgin Blue sponsorships are generally focused around charity groups, the airline is venturing further into the sports arena, with the QRU agreement complementing the existing NBL sponsorship agreement.

We are partnering with like-minded organisations that mirror Virgin Blues own outlook. Like the Reds, Virgin Blue enjoys kicking goals of our own in the corporate sector and weve made a lot of changes to our product. This partnership has the added bonus of providing opportunities to showcase the new Virgin Blue.
