Newcastle Jets commence take-off with FLIGHT CENTRE

Newcastle Jets are pleased to welcome airfare experts FLIGHT CENTRE on board as the first fresh partner of the evolving Hyundai A-League club.

FLIGHT CENTRE, a nationally recognised company with significant local connections via its centres and employees throughout Newcastle and Northern New South Wales, will be acknowledged as the ‘Official Travel Partner of the Newcastle Jets’ throughout the 2015-16 season.

Today Jets Chief Executive Officer, Mr Mitchell Murphy, visited FLIGHT CENTRE’s The Junction branch to acknowledge the commencement of the partnership – one that is set to provide benefits not only to FLIGHT CENTRE and the club, but also to Jets Members.

“FLIGHT CENTRE are leaders in their field and we aspire to be leaders in our field,” Mr Murphy said. “We are naturally delighted that at this very early stage of the club’s regeneration FLIGHT CENTRE have chosen to throw their support behind the Jets and football in Northern New South Wales.”

“While the club and FLIGHT CENTRE will share benefits from this partnership, there are some key components that have been included specifically for Jets Members. These will be outlined closer to the start of Hyundai A-League season 11, though the very nature of FLIGHT CENTRE’s business should give some hint as to what lucky Members may be in for.”

Jets Members and supporters will notice the club’s partnership with FLIGHT CENTRE being activated via its digital and social channels, member communications, as well as at selected Hunter Stadium held matches throughout Hyundai A-League season 11.

FLIGHT CENTRE New South Wales Marketing Manager, Enzina Scarcella, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the Newcastle Jets for their 2015-16 season and are really looking forward to the opportunity it presents to promote the world of travel to local Jets fans.”

In the Newcastle Jets fan catchment, FLIGHT CENTRE possesses an impressive 24 centres. Indeed, Jets supporters can score great holiday and travel deals in Hamilton, Charlestown, Glendale, Kotara, Warners Bay, The Junction, Newcastle (two stores), Jesmond, Raymond Terrace, Salamander Bay, Singleton, Cessnock, Cardiff, Morisset, Belmont, Toronto, Coffs Harbour, Forster, Grafton, Port Macquarie, Settlement City, Taree, and Toormina.

Newcastle Jets expect to be in a position to announce further commercial partnerships ahead of the 2015-16 Hyundai A-League season over the coming weeks.
