Boston Red Sox tab Magellan Jets as partner.
The Boston Red Sox have tabbed local jet card provider Magellan Jets as a partner of the Major League Baseball team.
According to the announcement, it is a multi-year deal.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the Boston Red Sox, an organization and brand that we as Boston locals have revered for our entire lives,” said Magellan Jets founder and CEO Joshua Hebert.
He added, “Throughout our 15 years as a company, it’s always been important to us to be active in our Greater Boston community, and this partnership represents that commitment. We’re excited to help both players and fans elevate their travel with our safe, reliable, purely private solutions.”
For the past several years, Magellan has worked with former Red Sox star David Ortiz, his charity, and his celebrity golf tournaments to help children in the Dominican Republic and New England receive critical cardiac care.
Last summer, Magellan flew Ortiz to his Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cooperstown, the culmination of the Fly with Ortiz Sweepstakes that raised $144,000 to support The Red Sox Foundation and the David Ortiz Children’s Fund.
Magellan Jets President Anthony Tivnan and Red Sox President Sam Kennedy both serve on the board of Camp Harbor View, an organization that inspires creativity, builds community, and champions leadership among Boston’s youth.
“The Red Sox are proud to partner with Magellan Jets, a brand with a shared commitment to providing world-class experiences with a demonstrated history of service to our community,” said Troup Parkinson, EVP of Partnerships, Boston Red Sox.
He continued, “As Magellan becomes a more visible brand around the ballpark, we look forward to collaborating on future initiatives and events that bolster the important work of the Red Sox Foundation.”
The new partnership will see Magellan and the Boston Red Sox introduce co-branded signage around Fenway Park, including inside the visiting team’s locker room.
The two companies will also collaborate on future promotions and events, including another Legends Flight Experience, to benefit The Red Sox Foundation.
The private jet company recently opened its first private lounge at Hanscom Field outside Boston, one of the 20 busiest private aviation airports in the country.
It is also expanding into aircraft management.
