Leinster and CityJet continue to soar

Ireland’s defending Pro12 rugby union champion Leinster has announced a three-year extension of its sponsorship agreement with CityJet.

CityJet, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Air France KLM Group, will continue as the official airline of Leinster Rugby until 2015.

The airline will provide European travel to Leinster for its Pro12 and Heineken Cup matches.

To mark the renewed deal, Leinster players Brian O’Driscoll, Rob Kearney and Jamie Heaslip will feature in a new advertising campaign to promote CityJet’s flights to London from Dublin, which operate up to six times daily.

CityJet are offering benefits to Leinster supporters, namely a fast track through Dublin airport for season ticket holders and the chance for four fans to fly with the team and enjoy tickets and accommodation in Italy for the November 24 Pro12 clash with Benetton Treviso.
