Smart’s On the Ball

For the last 16 years, Smart Aviation has been chartering teams, players, media and VIPs to some of the biggest football tournaments in the world. Having just finished the fifth consecutive European Championship football operation this summer, we’re excited for our involvement in the upcoming UEFA Champions League and Europa League competitions.

Following the draw today, West Ham, Rangers, Celtic and Leicester City will join the teams heading to the group stages of the Europa League. The first match will be held on 16 September 2021 before the knockout stages commence on 17 February 2022. The final will be held at Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, Seville on 18 May 2022.

Liverpool FC, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City will head to the group stages of the Champions League from 14 September and will seek to fight their way to the final on Saturday, 28 May 2022 at Gazprom Arena, Saint Petersburg.

As the leaders in global sports chartering, our unrivalled experience means we are easily able to charter flights for travellers from different countries too. With matches in both competitions being played at various stadiums across Europe, we’re able to accommodate all travel requirements and at short notice too, as match locations are confirmed throughout the competition.

Founded in 2005 by sports charter specialist, Managing Director Mark Hawkins, Smart Aviation also oversees flights for other sporting fixtures and competitions across the world.

Mark Hawkins said: “After a year of restricted travel, we are so excited to be back doing what we love, transporting players and fans to their crucial matches. Safe, premium travel has never been as important as it is now, and our expertise means we’re still the first choice of charter provider for many sports teams and official supporter groups. They rely on our expertise to ensure everyone gets where they need to be promptly, comfortably, and safely”.

We have a reputation for offering the highest level of service in aircraft chartering, so we’re constantly adapting to new procedures to ensure that our clients continue to receive a hassle-free service from enquiry to arrival.
