The strategic partnership will see strong brand collaboration between the two organisations and will strengthen the experience of visitors to Ireland West Airport and supporters of Connacht Rugby throughout the province.
Both brands share a vision to bring to life all that is good about the community of Connacht and both also have a long standing history and heritage in the west of Ireland.
Ireland West Airport is the main international travel hub for people throughout the West and North West of the country with over 800,000 passengers expected to pass through its doors in 2019. Visitors through the airport will be greeted by the newly refreshed Connacht brand identity which will be increasingly visible throughout the airport in the coming months.
Throughout the upcoming season of Champions Cup and PRO14 action in the Sportsground, the airport will provide fans attending home games the chance to win a pair of flights to a host of European destinations.
The winners of each pair of tickets will have the opportunity to select from routes such as Barcelona, Cologne, Faro, Milan, Liverpool, Bristol, Nottingham and Edinburgh.
