Scottish agency charters plane to Euro 2024

A Highland travel agency has chartered flight services to cater to Scottish football fans heading to the Uefa European football championship in Germany this summer.

Spirit Journeys is offering travel packages with a private flight departing from Inverness airport to Munich on June 13, and returning on June 24 from Stuttgart.

Julia MacLeay, Spirit Journeys’ owner, said: “With Scotland set to play three matches in the group stages of this year’s Euro 2024 Championship, Spirit Journeys is offering unique package deals to Scottish football fans eager to be part of the action.

“Spirit Journeys has chartered a private plane that will travel from Inverness to Munich on June 13, so Scottish football fans will arrive in the city in plenty of time to see Scotland kick off the tournament against host Germany on June 14.

“There has been incredible demand on flights to Germany since Scotland qualified in October 2023 and even more pressure on hotels and accommodation providers in the host cities long before that.

Therefore, while we do have a number of spaces still available across our package options, we expect these will book up quickly.”

The package deals have been developed with the support of local businessman and Inverness BID board director Don Lawson.

Packages are also available to those who wish to visit Germany during the summer but not attend the games.

Lawson commented: “After making it to the group stages of Euro 2020 after 24 years, we were reluctant to believe that this opportunity would come around again so soon.

“As it is, flights from Scotland to Germany are few and far between with many now sold out or near to it. This is a rare opportunity and a great experience for Scottish football fans across the Highlands and beyond.”
