Former Newcastle United captain, Scotland international and current club ambassador Bobby Moncur kicked off the deal at Newcastle International Airport by presenting the team from Loganair with a co-branded football and signed shirt from the North East club.

Loganair will now begin advertising at live televised Premier League games for the first time, starting on 18th January when the Toon Army cheer on their team against Chelsea at St James’ Park.

The airline also announced earlier this week that it would be introducing larger aircraft on its popular Newcastle-Aberdeen route to increase seat capacity by 21%. Loganair now flies six routes from Newcastle to Aberdeen, Brussels, Bergen, Stavanger, Newquay and Guernsey.

Kay Ryan, chief commercial officer at Loganair, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Newcastle United. Travellers from the North East can now fly from Newcastle to Norway as well as other destinations in Belgium, Cornwall and the Channel Islands.

“Earlier this week., we were pleased  to announce increased capacity on our popular Aberdeen to Newcastle route, improving links between North East Scotland and the North East of England and we look forward to discussing how we can further collaborate with Newcastle United later in the year.”

Dale Aitchison, head of commercial at Newcastle United FC, commented on the partnership: “We are delighted to welcome Loganair, the UK’s fastest growing airline, on board as our newest Associate Partner. Loganair is not only showing a huge commitment to Newcastle United but the North East region as a whole and we look forward to working closely with the team to raise awareness of the routes from Newcastle Airport.”
