LONDON – Corendon Airlines has today signed a deal with UK football club Hull City to become its official travel partner.
The partnership will see Corendon transport the club’s staff and players to pre-season training camps as well as a number of fixtures during the coming football seasons.
On top of this, the airline will transport 500 of the football club’s fans to Turkey for an all-expenses-paid trip later this year on the specially branded aircraft which you see above this article.
Commenting on this new partnership was Hull City chairman, Acun Ilicali:
“I had a dream to buy a football club in England, as part of that dream I also wanted to build a relationship between fans of my club and my country.”
“Hull City is becoming more and more famous in Turkey and I want our fans to be able to experience that and also see what a beautiful country Turkey is.”
“We are so happy to welcome Corendon Airlines to the Hull City family. Not only will they help us considerably with our transport needs, but they will also help spread the word of Hull City far and wide by the fantastic aircraft they have produced for us.”
Also commenting on the news was Yildiray Karaer, the Corendon Chairman of the Board:
“As Corendon Airlines, we are operating a total of 49 flights per week from the UK in the summer of 2022.”
“We have prepared a busy flight schedule between Antalya and the United Kingdom. We are proud of two strong brands setting out together within the scope of their growth targets in the UK.”
“We are signing an exciting agreement for us in order to both become a partner in Acun Ilıcalı’s goals abroad and strengthen our operations and image in the UK. By bringing Hull City fans to Turkey, we also aim to act as a cultural ambassador in sports.”
“We wish to fly to success together with Hull City. We hope that our cooperation will be beneficial to both sides.”
Great Addition for UK Expansion…
This is a great addition for Corendon Airlines to make, especially as it continues to expand within the country.
Back in April, the airline unveiled its Winter schedule for 2022/23, to which a vast offering is in place from numerous airports across the country.
The airline is expanding at a healthy rate, with this substantiated by the announcement back in February that Air Lease Corporation will place nine Boeing 737 MAX aircraft with the airline.
Overall, this is significant news for Corendon Airlines, and just when you think they have announced enough, they always seem to surprise you with more positive news.
