Chicago, IL (Premiere Global Sports) August 17, 2009 – Premiere Global Sports (www.premieresports.com) and ExpressJet Holdings (NYSE: XJT) have announced a unique and exciting partnership that will provide fans same day, roundtrip air service to NCAA football events.
Premiere Global Sports’ VIP game day packages include round trip air travel (including open bar), roundtrip deluxe coach transfers between the airport and game, refreshments on the coach and a professional travel host on board. Some trips offer game tickets and pregame packages as well. Charters include offerings to 35 Division I-A universities including teams from the Big 12, ACC, Big 10, PAC 10 and SEC conferences. For groups, businesses, booster clubs, donors and key customer or client entertainment, this program provides an extraordinary football game day experience, with some packages as low as $399 per person.
“Premiere Global Sports is delighted to offer the ExpressJet package to our clients,” says Christy Bruce, Executive Vice President of Premiere Global Sports’ College Division in Champaign, IL. “Our clients can attend games quickly and comfortably, virtually anywhere they’re played. This is perfect for a memorable event and is sure to be water cooler talk on Monday morning.”
ExpressJet can transport up to 50 people, to virtually any commercial airport, or private terminal where other carriers don’t have scheduled service. In and out, the same day, is a real advantage for fans trying to reach stadium locations and college towns on game day. Flying in and out at remote locations such as State College, PA, Lincoln, NE or Tucson, for example, is no problem. Other universities include Alabama, Texas Tech, USC and Virginia Tech. ExpressJet and Premiere Global Sports’ inaugural flight will be to the Oregon versus Boise State game in Boise, ID.
“We approached Premiere Global Sports because we know they have a great following. So far, in 2009, we have more than 40 trips to regular season games planned with more next season,” says Kristy Nicholas, ExpressJet Director-Communications.
