I was just flicking through an SIA timetable on the lavatory, and I saw an advert for SIA's SwiftRider service with a picture of an F1 car on it.

So I wondered, what airline do F1 people use and how long does it take? Also, how much do they haev to pay?


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

I know MASKargo (the cargo division of MAS) do actually fly some of the F1 cars. They flew cars from Adelaide before and plus, I do beleive MASKargo provide the flights when the leg is in Kuala Lumpur, especially when the circuit is like right next to the airport! (It will be in Kuala Lumpur in March this year!)

European Airlines,which is now owner of Minardi F1 have just bought 5 ex BA B.742's, to replace the BAC1-11's. 1 of the 742's is going to be dedicated to the Minardi F1 team, and go all around the world. Maybe that one will be half staff, half freight, or maybe just a standard combi a/c.

Just a thought.

A little bit off topic, but when I flew FRA-SFO on LH in Summer 2000, two racing cars (not F1) were loaded into the belly of the 744 for a transport to San Francisco and Monterey where the famous raceway Laguna Seca is located, I guess.

AZ and MH use Atlas Air freighters to transport these.

I've been in the hold of a BA 747 in DTW (Feb. '98)where a F1 had been loaded. Not sure exactly whose car it was but I am pretty sure it was a Ford....

Hey,

I think that Qantas also uses a B747-400.

Best regards,

Once I flew with Lufthansa and the co told me that he once had Mika Häkkinnen's car on the plane so LH obviously also is lucky every once in a while...

I seem to recall Fed Ex as being the official carrier of F1.

I thought they hauled alot of the cars?

It sounds like the same deal UPS had with "WorldWide Olympic Sponsorship" The summer Olympics in Sydney the Olympic commitee sent tickets out thru TNT.

The NASCAR deal with UPS has been GREAT!
