Official Airline of the Irish Rugby Team

We are very proud to be the official airline of the Irish Rugby Team, and we love nothing more than getting behind our boys in green. It's our pleasure and privilege to play our part by not only flying the team to matches, but also the legions of Irish fans, who will go wherever it takes to cheer on the team.
Here is our tribute to our Irish team and unique fans, who bring that little bit of Irish magic with them, that 'home advantage', that can even make away games, feel like the hallowed turf of the Aviva Stadium.
#HomeAdvantage Wherever we Play

Let's bring #HomeAdvantage wherever we play.

The partnership sees Ireland's national airline link up with the Irish rugby team, which has risen to seventh in the World Rugby rankings after back-to-back RBS 6 Nations Championship wins under the helm of Joe Schmidt and his coaching team.

The three year deal will see Aer Lingus support the IRFU by flying players, management and support staff around Europe as they compete in the RBS 6 Nations Championships and in other high profile international tournaments.

As part of the sponsorship agreement Aer Lingus has painted 2 aircraft with Irish rugby livery. These planes are called #GreenSpirit. In addition, a player from each of the four Irish provinces act as 'Aer Lingus Brand Ambassadors', and take part in sponsorship activity.
