Press Release:

(Dublin, IRELAND) – Today, GUINNESS® (© Guinness & Co 2012) unveils plans to surge to new heights as it launches its own premiere class jet service, Guinness Class.

The luxury Guinness Class private jets will fly from the UK to Dublin every Friday and Saturday evening promising Guinness fans an infinitely superior alternative to low cost airlines. The inaugural flight takes off on Friday 5th October and will run over a limited nine week period, from a variety of locations throughout the country, offering Guinness drinkers the chance to experience a flight they will never forget.

The Guinness Class jet will epitomise true luxury with opulent leather interiors, sumptuous surroundings and the very best in customer service. Each passenger will be individually catered to by Guinness Class cabin crew, all expertly trained in the art of pouring the perfect pint at altitude. With the on-board bar serving great GUINNESS and exquisite stout themed food, Guinness Class passengers will be treated to an unrivalled flying experience.

As the brand prepares to take its maiden voyage into the aviation sector, Nick Britton, GUINNESS Senior Brand Manager comments: “Whether it is brewing the perfect pint or flying our consumers by private jet to the home of Guinness, we never settle for the ordinary.”

Premium stout brand, GUINNESS is giving everyone the chance to get on board and experience premium travel. Every Friday and Saturday evening between 6pm and 8pm during the trial period, GUINNESS drinkers in pubs across the country will be in with the chance of winning a trip on a Guinness Class private jet and an unforgettable night out in GUINNESS’ hometown, Dublin before being chauffeured back to their own beds before sunrise.

The Guinness Class private jet experience will be exclusively available to a selection of lucky GUINNESS drinkers as part of an activity running in numerous pubs across the UK from October.
