Liverpool FC Arrives In Melbourne On Board Garuda Indonesia Special Flight

Liverpool FC arrived at 8.30pm today at the Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne on board a special chartered Garuda Indonesia A330-300 aircraft for their historic first ever match in Australia on Wednesday 24 July.

As Official Global Airline Partner, Garuda Indonesia is hosting the team's travel through Indonesia, Australia and Thailand as part of the LFC Asia Tour 2013. Liverpool Football Club’s pre-season tour comes in a bid to connect with fans throughout the world, and the Melbourne Cricket Ground match against Melbourne Victory is set to excite football fans nationwide.

Garuda Indonesia is flying the team on a dedicated A330-300 that carried the team from the John Lennon Airport in Liverpool to Jakarta, Melbourne and will later transport them to Bangkok before bringing them back home to Liverpool.

The special Airbus 330-300 wide body aircraft has a seat capacity of 257 passengers, consisting of 42 seats in Business and 215 in Economy Class. The aircraft also sports a customised logo of Liverpool FC and the slogan ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, which is synonymous with the team.

Commenting on the visit, Bagus Y. Siregar, Vice President for Garuda Indonesia Australia and SWP said:
“During their time here, Garuda Indonesia will host a private meet and greet with Liverpool FC players and selected guests to commemorate this historic visit and to celebrate the relationship between Garuda Indonesia and Liverpool FC. It is outstanding that a team of Liverpool’s calibre give time to visit their fans throughout the world, a respect that we also strive to pay our Garuda Indonesia passengers.”

“Our partnership with Liverpool FC is part of our ‘Quantum Leap’ program to transform the airline into a five star, global player in the aviation industry. Liverpool FC is one of the best clubs in the English Premier League, with a huge global fan base of more than one hundred million. We support their efforts to connect with these fans, and as their Official Global Airline Partner, we are proud to be able to bring them to this region,” added Mr. Siregar.
