It has been a bumper year for the FAI after a number of sellout games at the Aviva Stadium led to qualification for Euro 2016 and football in Ireland has been handed another boost with this latest sponsorship deal.
The FAI have announced that CityJet is now the official airline of the Irish team and will fly Martin O'Neill's men out to France this June for the European Championships. There is good news for some fans who wish to travel and support the team too - season ticket holders will receive a 10% discount on all CityJet flights.
That could be particularly helpful for people who hope to attend games this summer, with Ireland's tournament opener taking place at the Stade de France against Sweden in Paris.
FAI Chief Executive John Delaney said: “Having an Irish airline with the network offered by CityJet as official partner is very important for the FAI. We are really looking forward to working closely with the CityJet team in a year which offers so much excitement and promise for everyone who loves Irish football.”
