Erebus has today announced another expansion of its operations, launching an aerial rideshare service named Erebus Air.
Erebus Air will operate an affordable airline service, using Will Brown’s Glasair plane to get fans to and from Supercars events.
With flights traveling at an altitude of 10,000ft and with speeds of up to 370kph, the plane and service has the potential to change the fan experience.
“We’re excited to make this service available to the thousands of fans that travel to our events,” Erebus CEO Barry Ryan said.
“This venture gives us the perfect opportunity to engage with our fans on another level that they will not find anywhere else.”
The expansion also proves to be a travel solution for patrons with congestion a growing concern for airports around the country.
“We recognize the importance of having fans at the track, and we wanted to help lift attendance after seeing the majority of last year’s events without spectators,” Ryan said.
Having obtained his private pilot licence in 2019, Will Brown has played an important role in the company’s latest development.
“The fans are so crucial to our sport and they were noticeably absent last year,” Brown said.
“Some of my trips are several hours long so it gets a bit lonely up there by myself and I am looking forward to the company.”
Flights will travel to and from Supercars events with Brown looking forward to filling his empty seats.
The first flight will be operational in May for the Bend SuperSprint, with additional flights rolling out to all major cities later this year.
