Travel Fabulous from the Highway to the Sky Way

V Australia is set to become the first Australian airline to offer chauffeured limousine door to door transport for top tier Business Flexi fare paying Guests travelling in International Business Class.

The new offering will be launched from today and will provide yet another point of difference between V Australia and other trans-Pacific carriers.

Pioneered by V Australia’s sister airline, Virgin Atlantic, limo transfers to and from the airport provide travellers with a convenient, comfortable and stress-free transfer both on the way to their flight and again once they land at their destination.

Virgin Blue Group Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said, “We have been very heartened by the support for V Australia’s International Business Class product and introducing a limo service will provide yet another all-inclusive differentiating benefit for Guests.

We’ve had terrific feedback from travellers who have enjoyed not only our award winning friendly service but in particular, our fully lie flat bed in all aircraft with duvets and PJ’s, the in-flight sit down bar, the ‘eat what you want when you want’ menu and the latest generation user friendly touch screen in-flight entertainment system.”

He added, “The addition of the limo transfer service is about V Australia demonstrating its commitment to going the extra mile. We are eager to ensure our International Business Guests get receive not just greater value but a better overall travel experience from beginning to end by travelling to and from the airport with convenience and hassle free style.”

The chauffeur service will apply to Guests on both departing and arrival legs, within a 60 kilometre radius to the airport in Sydney, Brisbane or from any other Australian capital city if they have a connecting V Australia flight, and a 50 mile radius from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) or San Francisco if connecting to V Australia with Virgin America.

V Australia in Australia will use luxury cars for the transfers including limousines, Chevrolet Caprice BMW, Mercedes, Audi A8’s and in the United States, Lincoln Town Cars and SUV’s.
