Air Europa has announced that it has become the sole main sponsor for British Padel. This announcement occurs in the context of a South American expansion campaign conducted by the airline. During the past year, they have added new routes to Sao Paulo, Santiago de Chile and San Juan.
Paddle Tennis, generically called Padel was invented more than 100 years ago on British Cruises. The British Padel entity has been established in 1992 and since its growth in popularity it has attracted some attention from various sponsors like Air Europa.
“We are delighted to support British Padel, and their work in bringing this fantastic sport to the British public. Padel is, great fun to play, a wonderful spectacle to watch, and a superb day out for the whole family. Also, as it is strongly identified with Spain and Latin America, the sport is a natural partner for Air Europa, and we are sure British Padel has a very bright future indeed.” Colin Stewart, UK General Manager, Air Europa
“The Air Europa brand is instantly associated with Latin America and Spain, and also with attributes such as excellence, vibrancy and growth, which are very much shared by our exciting and growing sport. We are extremely happy to have their support in our work to continue to establish and expand Padel here in the UK. So far we have had a great experience working with Air Europa and we very much look forward to a long-term future partnership.” British Padel President Peter Vaan
Air Europa is under Spanish ownership and operates flights internationally with 16 destinations on its South American portfolio. It also sets flag towards New York, Miami and the Caribbean.
