Customer: Lyon FC
Reason for charter: Travel to UEFA League match
Aircraft: B767
Config: All VIP

In March 2018, we had the privilege of flying Olympique Lyonnais to Moscow, Russia for their UEFA Europa League, Round of 16 first leg tie against CSKA Moscow.

The club chartered a 96 seat, VIP configured Boeing 767 for the trip to Moscow, equipped with lie-flat business class seats offering a 73 inch seat pitch. The team and staff had access to the WiFi-based inflight entertainment available on the aircraft for use on their on own phone, tablet or laptop.

With business class catering and a full complimentary bar on board, the team and staff took full advantage. The menus were tailored specifically by the club’s nutritionist to the players and staff requirements.

Using a VIP terminal in Moscow, the club’s movements were kept private and discreet to ensure a smooth transition from the aircraft to their awaiting coach, which was ready to take them to their hotel.
