Flying start for Battle of the Brits

Tennis legends Jamie and Sir Andy Murray have arrived in Aberdeen with the rest of the Team Scotland players ahead of taking on Team England in Schroders Battle of the Brits – Scotland versus England.


As official travel partner for the tournament, Loganair is responsible for flying the players to and from Aberdeen. They touched down this morning (Tuesday, 20th December) on a chartered flight, ahead of the much-anticipated event taking place at Aberdeen’s P&J Live Arena on 21-22 December 2022.

The competition, which was created by Jamie Murray in response to the lack of tournament tennis during the COVID-19 pandemic, is now one of the UK’s leading domestic tennis events. Schroders Battle of the Brits - Scotland versus England, which was originally due to be held in December 2021, will be the fourth tournament in the series.


Jamie Murray said:

“We're really grateful for the support from Loganair to help get all the players to and from Aberdeen in style. We're all very excited to be here for what is going to be a fantastic two days of tennis in the Granite City."


Luke Lovegrove, Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:

“We are proud to be flying the best of British tennis across our network in support of reuniting fans with live tennis at the much-anticipated Battle of the Brits tournament. It’s Loganair’s pleasure to be the official travel partner for this event.”
