 Airnorth is thrilled to announce its recent agreement with the Cairns City Lions Football Club as major sponsor and preferred airline for the 2021 AFL season. The Territory’s home-grown airline has renewed its sponsorship agreement off the back of a successful 2020 partnership where Airnorth transported players to games between Darwin and Cairns. 

“We are thrilled to be supporting the Cairns City Lions Football Club for another season,” said Teyghan Stadelbauer, Airnorth Marketing and Communications Manager. “This is a valued partnership because both Airnorth and the Cairns City Lions Football Club are committed to community and providing opportunities for those that may live in regional locations.” 

The recently struck 2021 sponsorship agreement will support Darwin based AFL players and those in more remote locations to travel to Cairns in order to continue their football. 

“We are so grateful for the assistance of Airnorth with transport for our players to Cairns safely and on time,” said Aaron Davey Head Coach Cairns City Lions. “We have used Airnorth in the past but since 2020 they have become a valuable supporter and our airline of choice to move our players between Darwin and Cairns.” 

Airnorth is committed to connecting communities and supporting sports excellence programs across its network. Airnorth welcomes clubs to apply through its website for sponsorship opportunities.
