Miami Marlins introduce Wheels Up as team’s Private Aviation Partner


Miami, Florida- 4 June 2018  – The Miami Marlins announced Wheels Up as the team’s Official Private Aviation Partner, with a focus on promoting Wheels Up services in the Marlins Green Room, presented by Ciroc. Wheels Up will now have the ability to leverage celebrities, influencers and other athletes attending Marlins games.

“This agreement with Wheels Up provides a presence in The Green Room, presented by Ciroc – the premiere lounge for VIPs, influencers, and celebrities, and other athletes attending a Marlins game – and is a great example of our ability to find innovative and unique ways to feature our partners at Marlins Park,” said David Oxfeld, Marlins Vice President, Head of Corporate Partnerships. “The partnership is another result of establishing and developing meaningful relationships in the corporate world, both locally and nationally.”

Wheels Up, the fastest growing membership-based private aviation company, significantly reduces the upfront costs to fly privately, while providing unparalleled flexibility, service and safety.

“I’ve had the distinct honour and privilege of doing business with Marlins CEO Derek Jeter,” said Justin Firestone, Founding Partner of Wheels Up.  “The leadership and culture of doing things the right way to ensure sustained success that he’s brought to the Marlins organization made this partnership a no brainer for Wheels Up. We are confident the Marlins will help us fulfill our goal of creating a world class experience for our 5,000+ Wheels Up Members as well as continuing to support the communities where we operate.”
