Norwich City are delighted to announce a long-term partnership with Loganair, who become the Club’s inaugural airline partner.
Loganair will take over the exclusive management of all Norwich City air travel, including flights to select away matches, as well as ad hoc domestic travel.
Part of the Airline Investments Limited (AIL) group, Loganair was founded in 1962 and employs approximately 600 staff to undertake around 1,000 air services each week using a fleet of 29 aircraft.
It carries over 750,000 passengers each year and connects Shetland, Orkney and the Western Isles to key destinations in Scotland, as well as providing other regional air links from its operational bases at Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Inverness, Kirkwall and Norwich. Loganair is a codeshare partner of British Airways and sister airline of bmi Regional.
Speaking on behalf of Loganair, Commercial Director Kay Ryan said: “This is a very important strategic arrangement for us, as Norwich Airport is our only operational base outside Scotland. It shows our continued and growing commitment to the city and the airport.
“Like us, Norwich City FC has a passion to be the best they can be, and I know we’ll both go from strength to strength over the next three years. I’m confident this partnership will be to the mutual benefit of our two organisations.”
Norwich City Commercial Director Ben Kensell added: “This partnership is a really significant step forward commercially as it benefits both the 1st team requirements and boosts the commercial revenue streams further. There are very few clubs outside of the Premier League that have an airline partner so we are really pleased to have a long term agreement signed with the brilliant team at Logan Air.
“This business also concludes our partnership portfolio for the 2018/19 season and we are delighted with the growth achieved considering the loss of parachute payments. I would like to thank Loganair for their support and all of our commercial partners which support the club so strongly.”
