bmibaby signs up for another two years

19th December 2005

bmibaby, the award winning airline with tiny fares, is proud to announce the continuation of its support for the Cardiff Blues for a further two seasons (2006/07 and 2007/08).

The Cardiff based low cost airline, which has supported the Blues since 2003, is continuing its support as the main club sponsor for the next two seasons. This will take bmibaby’s partnership as headline sponsor of the Cardiff Blues into its sixth year.

The announcement comes just weeks after bmibaby unveiled further expansion plans at Cardiff International Airport, basing a third aircraft at the airport for summer 2006 and offering new routes to Amsterdam and Glasgow International.

David Bryon, bmibaby's managing director added:
"Cardiff Blues is a fantastic club with magnificent supporters and bmibaby is proud to commit to a further two years as the club's principal commercial partner.

"On behalf of bmibaby I'd like to congratulate the Blues on beating Italian champions Calvisano last weekend and to welcome Jonah Lomu to the team on what will be his first home match.

"We look forward to developing our relationship with the Blues over the coming years."

Bob Norster, CEO, Cardiff Blues, commented:
“The signing of another two year deal as headline sponsor with bmibaby is fantastic for the club. The airline have backed us one hundred and ten per cent since their arrival in Cardiff and we are pleased that this weekend’s match is one to remember for all of our supporters.”

Fares start from just £16.99 one way, including taxes and charges. Flights to Amsterdam, a new destination on the bmibaby route network from Cardiff, start on 26th March 2006. bmibaby also flies from Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham East Midlands and Durham Tees Valley.
