Aston Villa announce partnership with Turkish Airlines

Fri 6th Sep 2013 | Football Sponsorship

Aston Villa have announced Turkish Airlines as their Official Airlines Partner for the 2013-14 season.

A leading global player in commercial aviation and now the fourth largest carrier of passengers throughout Europe, Turkish Airlines was named Europe's Best Airline for a third consecutive year at the 2013 World Airline Awards.

Operating direct flights between Birmingham and Istanbul with onward connections to more than 200 destinations worldwide - flying to more countries than any other airline in the world - Turkish Airlines' expansion in the Midlands in recent years means that 10 flights depart from Birmingham International Airport on a weekly basis, underlining the company's commitment to the region.

It boasts one of the largest and youngest fleets in the world, with recent commercial partnerships with other leading clubs in Europe encouraging Turkish Airlines to seek this opportunity to connectwith Villa fans and with the Midlands heartland.

Aston Villa Chief Executive Paul Faulkner said: "We are delighted to have secured this deal with Turkish Airlines, especially given their strong and still growing presence in the region as well as their global reach and reputation.

"The partnership also underlines the appeal of Aston Villa, with our vibrant, aspirational characteristics offering a perfect synergy. Our fans will benefit, too, as Turkish Airlines cement their position in the Midlands still further, and we look forward to working together with them and our growing number of Official Partners."

Mr. Selim Ozturk, Turkish Airlines General Manager in Birmingham, said: "We are also extremely pleased to enter this partnership agreement with Aston Villa, one of the most established and successful football clubs in the UK. We wish them all the best for the new season."
