Nolinor Aviation on October 8 announced a 10-year contract to serve as the official charter flight partner of the Montreal Alouettes football team.
For the second such partnership between the two organizations, Nolinor has personalized one of its Boeing 737s with the Alouettes’ logo and colours – making Montreal the first Canadian Football League team to have a personalized plane.
“We are very proud to continue our partnership with Nolinor Aviation, a local company. Their proposition is very original. On top of counting on their transportation service for our travels, we can do so while sporting our colours,” said Mario Cecchini, president, Alouettes. “This partnership offers us many advantages. We have a greater flexibility for our traveling schedule, on top of continuing to work hand in hand with a partner that offers an excellent service, and whose staff is always in good spirits.”
The 737, which has already been in circulation for a few weeks, was configured to accommodate all of the travelling members of the team and its equipment.
Founded in 1946, Montreal has won the Grey Cup seven times, bookmarked by Championships in 1949 and 2010.
