Netball New Zealand Announces Qantas As New Official Airline

Netball New Zealand today announced that it has signed a three-year sponsorship agreement with Qantas as its official airline.

Netball New Zealand CEO Shelley McMeeken said the organisation was thrilled to have formed the new partnership with Qantas.

“Qantas has a great appreciation and understanding of the role that netball plays as our country’s leading women’s sport and are looking forward to promoting Qantas’ involvement and support of netball in New Zealand”, she said.

Along with the official airline status, Qantas will also sponsor the Netball New Zealand Umpire Squad beginning with the upcoming National Bank Cup along with the Fisher & Paykel Series and Smokefree Champs.

The Vodafone Silver Ferns and Netball New Zealand will now travel with Qantas on domestic services to Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Netball New Zealand would also utilise services offered by Qantas codeshare partner, Origin Pacific, to other regional destinations.

In addition the Vodafone Silver Ferns will travel with Qantas internationally including Jamaica which will host the World Netball Championships in 2003.
