Eleven Jet2.com aircraft heading to Hamburg for Europa Cup final

The North’s leading leisure airline, Jet2.com will play a key role in tonight’s Europa League Final - as the airline is set to fly over 2000 ardent Fulham FC fans to Hamburg in what is set to be the biggest match in the club’s 131 year history.

Taking on the might of Spain’s Atletico Madrid, Roy Hodgson’s men will be cheered on by their army of fans, with eleven Jet2.com aircraft flying supporters from Gatwick and Luton to Hamburg airport later today. The aircraft have been chartered by official and unofficial supporters of the club, as well as Seat cars the official sponsor of the Europa League, bringing essential support to the stands of HSH Nordbank’s 51 000 capacity stadium.

Philip Meeson, Jet2.com boss said: “I’m thrilled that Jet2.com is playing such a vital role in tonight’s Europa Cup Final! Everyone knows that football teams thrive on their fans’ support and I’m delighted that so many supporters will be able to experience Jet2.com’s friendly and welcoming service. It is fantastic to see a British team play in a European final and we look forward to bringing the Fulham fans safely back to the UK tomorrow, whatever the result may be!”
