Aer Arann has teamed up with Munster Rugby to become the Official Airline to the Munster Rugby Team under a brand new sponsorship agreement.
Already a popular choice for the Munster squad and rugby fans, Aer Arann's direct regional access from the province to Irish and UK rugby destinations make it the perfect fit as the club's preferred airline.

Commenting on the official announcement Aer Arann Corporate Affairs Director Andrew Kelly said "We are proud to become the official airline of Munster Rugby. We have a strong presence in Munster with bases in Cork and Waterford and we see this as a natural development of what is already a strong relationship with the team and Munster fans. We look forward to welcoming both Munster Rugby and the Red Army on board many of our flights in the future". Tomas O'Leary and Ronan O'Gara

Garrett Fitzgerald, CEO Munster Rugby added "Aer Arann has been delivering Munster Rugby to destinations home and abroad for five years. Its efficiency and flexibility has proved essential in transporting the squad as effortlessly as possible to their various match destinations and back. Just as importantly, Munster rugby supporters have also been able to lend their support thanks to the service provided by Aer Arann. We are delighted to be formally associated with Aer Arann. We believe that Munster and Aer Arann share the same values. We passionately believe in what we do. We remain true to ourselves and our support base. We know we have to punch well above our weight to stay ahead in a fiercely competitive European market."

The agreement comes ahead of the Munster's highly anticipated Magner's League clash against Leinster in the RDS this weekend, which will see both the team and many fans choosing to fly with Aer Arann to Dublin from Cork to watch the team in action.

Aer Arann customers are guaranteed greater value when they fly, with no charges for luggage (up to 15kg for checked luggage and 7kg for hand luggage), no airport or online check in fees, free allocated seated and much more.
