Commercial Manager for Ulster Grand Prix, Philip Mitchell was thrilled at the extension, commenting; “Having Aer Lingus on board is more important than anyone can imagine – they are an outstanding premium brand who give another level of credibility to the “World’s Fastest Road Race.”
Commercial Manager for Aer Lingus in Northern Ireland, Valerie Abbott said; “We are delighted to be part of The Ulster Grand Prix again this year. The people of Northern Ireland have supported Aer Lingus from the first day we took off here six years ago. We value their support and believe in mirroring that support with sponsorship of home-grown events such as this one.
“In Belfast, our base at George Best City Airport goes from strength to strength. Our summer sun destinations to Faro, Malaga, and Palma have proven particularly popular with our Northern Irish customers. Our passenger numbers on these flights continue to grow and overall they are telling us that we are exceeding their expectations.
“We have also recently announced our Winter 2013/14 schedule from George Best Belfast City Airport, which continues to offer the two key routes for business, leisure and transfer traffic, in and out of London Heathrow and London Gatwick.
“There are three return flights daily to each airport with 84 weekly departures and arrivals, amounting to over 12,000 seats each week, so international bike fans travelling into Northern Ireland for Bike Week have a wide range of options open to them.”
Aer Lingus wishes Ulster Grand Prix bikers and their fans a safe and successful Bike Week.
