Aer Lingus have signed up as the event's airline partner.
THE organisers of the world's fastest road race, the Ulster Grand Prix, have today announced that Northern Ireland's best low fare airline, Aer Lingus have signed up as the event's airline partner.

The event will this year take place between 8 – 14 August.

Noel Johnston, Clerk of the Course, said; “I'm delighted that Aer Lingus is back on board with us this year. We rely on sponsors to make the Prix happen and so really appreciate that Aer Lingus has stuck by us this past three years.

“Every year the numbers of international racers coming over to compete from as far afield as Australia, Spain, France and Italy, Czech Republic and the USA increases. I want to build on this and having an airline partner is perfect for doing so,” he said.

Commenting on the partnership, Enda Corneille, Corporate Affairs Director at Aer Lingus, said; “We are delighted to confirm our continued support of the Ulster Grand Prix, given its huge following and longstanding history.

“Aer Lingus operates flights to eight European routes from Belfast International Airport and our code share agreement with British Airways allows for onward travel from London Heathrow to 93 Worldwide destinations - opening up the opportunity for the event to welcome more international competitors and spectators,” he said.

Noel added, “The Ulster Grand Prix is very much back by popular demand. We had a superb day of racing and over 25,000 spectators on the day will back me up on that!”
