Miranda Kerr test drives new chauffeur service
Los Angeles, 14 January 2013
Qantas ambassador Miranda Kerr has stepped out in Los Angeles to help promote the airline’s upcoming Chauffeur Drive service.
Chauffeur Drive will be offered to Qantas travellers as part of its global airline partnership with Emirates from April 2013, and to other Qantas long-haul destinations from mid-2013.
Passengers will be collected in a luxury vehicle and driven to the airport to meet their flight. On arrival at their destination, they will be met by another chauffeur service and driven to their hotel, office or home.
Miranda said she was looking forward to using the new service.
“I’m sure many regular travellers like myself will appreciate not having to worry about organising transport to and from the airport,” said Miranda.
“This is a fantastic new benefit, providing an extra level of convenience at the beginning and end of your journey.”
Chauffeur Drive will be offered to Qantas passengers travelling in First and Business on flights between Australia to Dubai and London from April 2013.
Elsewhere on the Qantas network, Chauffeur Drive will be available on flights greater than 12 hours long from July 2013 – namely, flights between Australian and Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, Santiago and Johannesburg.
Subject to regulatory approval, Qantas and Emirates will form a global partnership and provide customers in Australia access to more than 70 one-stop destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The partnership will give customers a seamless Australian and international network, exclusive frequent flyer benefits and world-class travel experiences.
The shoot with Miranda tops a week of activity by Qantas in the United States that has included its Sprit of Australia cocktail event, involvement in the 10th annual G’Day USA function and the announcement of the Ellen DeGeneres Show coming to Australia in March.
