    Virgin and Special launch next chapter of ‘Bring on Wonderful’

    Virgin Australia has rolled out the next phase of its ‘Bring on Wonderful’ brand platform, first introduced in 2022, via creative agency, Special.

    The campaign story is told through the eyes of a typically reluctant teenager about to embark on a family holiday, who is pleasantly surprised by the airline‘s baggage handlers spontaneously breaking out into a dance.

    The work was inspired by Virgin Australia team members going above and beyond: a viral video of a Perth baggage handler talking to a dog before it was loaded into the cargo hold, or a cabin crew member comforting an infant while continuing in-flight service.

    Virgin Australia’s chief marketing officer Libby Minogue said the airline was thrilled to feature its people as it launched the second phase of the ‘Bring on Wonderful’ platform.

    “It’s wonderful to hero our baggage handlers who have played a significant role in launching our Australian airline-first baggage tracking technology, one of the many customer innovations we have recently implemented,” she said.

    Nils Eberhardt, group creative director at Special, added that “the aim for this campaign was to take that wonderful personality from the tarmac into Australians’ homes.”

    “Whenever you fly with Virgin Australia, you immediately notice that their whole crew are determined to add joy to your journey,” said Eberhardt.

    The campaign will be in-market for six weeks, rolling out across TV, outdoor and digital.

    Virgin added that over the past year, it has consistently invested in customer innovation to align with the brand platform. This includes introducing features like baggage tracking technology, Apple Pay, and Rapid Rebook, a self-service tool for managing disruptions. The airline also recently revealed plans to become the first in Australia to allow pets onboard flights. 

    Virgin staff have been recognised with Airline Ratings’ Best Cabin Crew award for six consecutive years.

    The campaign follows a number of new campaigns from Special, including Special PR partnering with Pepsi to launch ‘The Pepsi Pulse Runway Collection’, and reintroducing the ANZ Falcon.
