Official Airline of the Irish Rugby Team
We are very proud to be the official airline of the Irish Rugby Team, and we love nothing more than getting behind our boys in green. It's our pleasure and privilege to play our part by not only flying the team to matches, but also the legions of Irish fans, who will go wherever it takes to cheer on the team.
The three year deal will see Aer Lingus support the IRFU by flying players, management and support staff around Europe as they compete in the RBS 6 Nations Championships and in other high profile international tournaments.
As part of the sponsorship agreement Aer Lingus has painted 2 aircraft with Irish rugby livery. These planes are called #GreenSpirit. In addition, a player from each of the four Irish provinces act as 'Aer Lingus Brand Ambassadors', and take part in sponsorship activity.
