Robin Hood Airport has been chosen by specialist sports operators, Sportops.com, to offer a flight to Moscow so that fans can watch the England football team play their Euro 2008 fixture against Russia. The event will take place on 17th October 2007 and offers fans a chance of watching the match and seeing the sights of Moscow while they’re there. This is the second year in a row the airport has offered this service as last year was such a success.
Sportops.com announced that they intend to provide two flights to Russia’s historic capital Moscow so that they can provide fans in the north of England the opportunity to attend England’s next step towards the Euro 2008 finals.
Special chartered day-trip flights for fans desperate to see England play Russia will be taking off from the airport in Doncaster in the early morning. This means that fans will arrive in the Russian capital by lunchtime, leaving plenty of time to see the sights of the historic capital and enjoy the Russian hospitality before going on to watch what is a vitally important game for England in its quest to qualify for the finals in 2008.
This is a rare opportunity for all sports fans to combine cheering their favourite team on as well as having a mini-break. The same service was provided last year and was a massive success. Robin Hood Airport sold flights to Macedonia and Croatia in 2006 which were sold out within days.
Return flights cost £399 per person and match tickets are not included. It has been recommended that people book early in order to avoid disappointment as tickets are likely to sell out quickly.
