Adagold Helps Hockey Australia Soar Across Northern Sea-Border
Months of planning, coordination and communication led to the flawless charter outcome for our transport for Hockey Australia’s national teams, the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos.
Two Teams, 36 super excited elite athletes, 20 officials, and a myriad of baggage and team equipment to move in a timely manner. How’d we do it? Well, read on to find out.
The teams left their training base in Darwin, travelling to Cairns aboard a professional team private charter, where they connected with the official carrier, Qantas, for their final leg of the journey. Adagold Aviation worked seamlessly with Hockey Australia and their agent in the weeks and days leading up to the departure of the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos. After the initial call to arms, we quickly provided the agent looking after the hockey governing body with a quote and a plan to get Australia’s best men’s and women’s teams, plus all their essential equipment, to their destination. Whatsmore, we coordinated the whole thing, taking the stress away from the organisation so they could focus more on their major sporting event.
When working with such high-level sports organisations, several precautions are needed to ensure everyone is game-ready right after touchdown. Adagold acted swiftly to iron out any concerns Hockey Australia had and secured them a comfortable, stress-free professional team private charter.
Sports teams are dependent on their equipment. Everything from uniforms to shoes, sticks, strapping tape, water bottles, coolers, eskies, you name it, has to be with the team. Still, things change, and equipment quantities are unpredictable until they’ve all been packed up and placed in one spot. In most instances, this only happens moments before it all needs to be put away for travel.
The unknown quantity and volume of the baggage and team equipment was an identifiable complexity that Adagold solved swiftly. We provided several contingency plans to account for any unseen luggage changes which may arise. It was paramount that every piece of baggage landed in Cairns with the team before they boarded their international flight. And with Adagold’s foresight and experience chartering high-level sports teams, this is exactly what happened. Not one hockey stick, ball, training shirt or lucky headband was left behind.
On the day of the charter, Adagold managed the ground logistics for baggage and equipment transfers when they touched down in Cairns, which afforded the two Australian teams an effortless and timely transfer between terminals.
Adagold Aviation’s long-standing prominence in the Aviation Charter, Source and Management space, coupled with a strong depth in business relationships with aircraft operators alike, allowed us to easily secure the charter, work closely with the aircraft operator, and problem solve at every angle to meet the client’s brief.
It goes without saying, Adagold Aviation’s team of Charter Specialists have the aviation expertise, the depth of knowledge and the ability to meet the desired outcome you need for your next professional team private charter experience.
About The Aussie Teams
The Australian field hockey teams are among the world’s best. At Tokyo 2020, the Kookaburras (men’s team) won a silver medal, while the Hockeyroos (women’s team) went through the Group Stage undefeated before suffering a shock loss to India in the quarter finals.
The Hockeyroos have won three Olympic Gold Medals (1988, 1996, 2000). The Kookaburras’ solitary Olympic gold came in 2004 in Athens. Their silver medal in Tokyo made it four silvers and five bronze in their 16 Olympic appearances.
