Loganair signs partnership with EFL Championship club Middlesbrough FC

Regional carrier Loganair has announced a partnership with Middlesbrough FC, the EFL Championship club which is closest to its operational base at Teesside Airport.

This sees Loganair become a Gold Partner club and the club's official airline partner.

The deal has an initial one-year duration.

As such, Loganair takes over the exclusive management of all Middlesbrough FC's charter air travel, including flights to select away matches, as well as ad hoc corporate domestic travel.

Loganair Commercial Director Kay Ryan said: "This is a very important strategic arrangement as Teesside has become an increasingly strong operational base for us. It shows our continued and growing commitment to the airport and to the Tees Valley region.

"We have developed a specialism in bespoke charter requirements for football clubs and we are pleased and excited to be able to bring this expertise to Middlesbrough."

Loganair currently operates scheduled services from Teesside Airport to London Heathrow, Bristol, Aberdeen and Belfast.

Next summer it will add routes to Southampton and Dublin.

Middlesbrough FC's Head of Commercial Lee Fryett, said: "We are delighted to announce the partnership with Loganair. We have developed a strong commercial and operational relationship with them over a number of years now and this sees us further strengthen our links."

In the first action of the new partnership, Loganair flew the Middlesbrough players and officials to Farnborough Airport for the recent EFL Championship match at Reading.
