Ulster Rugby’s flying start to the season has been given a turbo charged boost with the signing of a major new sponsorship deal with Aer Lingus.
Details of the two-year support package were unveiled at a signing ceremony held at Ravenhill.
As part of the new relationship, Aer Lingus will provide Ulster Rugby with air travel as well as supporting the development of travel and accommodation packages for Ulster supporters to away matches.
Declan Kearney, Aer Lingus Director of Communications said: “As the official airline of Ulster Rugby we are absolutely delighted to have the responsibility of providing transport from George Best Belfast City Airport and Dublin Airport for the playing squad, the support team and fans, throughout our extensive UK and European network.
“The broadening of our sponsorship horizons through this exciting new Ulster Rugby deal reflects a continued commitment by Aer Lingus to the local community and complements our other community support such as sponsorship of the Dublin GAA team and of the Galway Hurlers supporters club.
“We look forward to welcoming Ulster’s players, support team and fans on board our flights over the coming season and future years.”
Phillip Polack, Ulster Rugby Business Development Director said: “The reputation of Aer Lingus as a proactive organisation fits superbly with our ambitions at Ulster Rugby and we look forward to cementing a long-lasting partnership.”
