Las Vegas Raiders and Viva Aerobus have formed a collaboration making the airline the NFL team’s first Mexico-based partner.

The deal, announced at Allegiant Stadium, will see Viva Aerobus decorate one of its Airbus aircrafts with Raiders imagery in the more than 2,000 flights a year it will carry out. 

“We have strong ties to Mexico and are grateful to our loyal fan base there. We are committed to continuing to grow Raider Nation in Mexico,” said Sandra Douglass Morgan, President of the Las Vegas Raiders.

As the firm looks to strengthen its presence in the US, it will also be involved in social media, promising fans chances to win trips, exclusive access and tickets to attend Raiders games in Las Vegas.

Additionally, the pair continue in their aim to promote healthy recreation, sports and the values associated with them, and connect with the local community and culture. 

Juan Carlos Zuazua, General Director of Viva Aerobus, added: “We are very excited to be the official Mexican airline of the Raiders, a team that, like us, is guided by discipline, perseverance, camaraderie and passion for what we do. 

“And it is that this new alliance allows us to connect our passengers with an exciting sport in the entertainment capital of the world. There can be no better combination to watch than professional football in Las Vegas. Let’s fly high with the Raiders! And as the team’s fans say: ‘Just Win Baby’.”
