We wanted to share some exciting news with you all, that today we are announcing Jaguar Land Rover as our exclusive vehicle partner.
As we edge closer to commercial operations, we are starting to enter into brand and media partnerships that will elevate Virgin Galactic across the world and also enhance your experience as a Future Astronaut; as part of the community, through your time in New Mexico and of course in space.
Land Rover is Virgin Galactic’s first global partner, bringing together two leaders in adventure, innovation and exploration. We see many great parallels, and Land Rover shares our commitment to iconic design and engineering excellence and a desire to push the boundaries of travel for the next generation. The partnership with Land Rover will mean their vehicles are an integral part of your experience with us in New Mexico. Your space experience will begin with Land Rover upon your arrival in New Mexico for training and continue to the moment you drive from Spaceport America to the waiting spaceship.
Richard expressed his excitement with the partnership: “We couldn’t be more delighted to have Land Rover join us on our incredible journey. It is hard to think of brand which is more synonymous with exploration and adventure. The safety and engineering excellence of Land Rover’s vehicles, which have been the stuff of legend for more than 60 years, are attributes which also lie at the heart of Virgin Galactic. We look forward to crossing the final frontier together and to a long and fruitful partnership.”
The public announcement is being made today in New York City at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum against the backdrop of the SpaceShipTwo replica and Land Rover’s new Discovery Vision Concept vehicle – check out the photo below. As is always the motivation behind our partnerships, this will help to establish Virgin Galactic as the world’s leading spaceline, and ensure your experience from beginning to end is truly world class.
Wishing you a great week ahead!
