Kansas City Chief’s QB Mahomes will continue his role as ambassador and spokesperson for private jet provider Airshare.
Airshare announced today a multi-year extension of its marketing partnership with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, which began before the future Hall of Fame quarterback’s first season as the starter for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2018.
Last year Mahomes captured his second NFL MVP and a second Super Bowl Championship.
“Airshare was one of my first partnerships – they believed in me from the very beginning of my professional career as a starting quarterback,” said Mahomes.
He added, “We have both experienced a lot of success over the last five years. As my travel needs have evolved, Airshare has always been there for me and my family. Now more than ever, I appreciate how flying private allows me to get the most out of my limited time during the offseason. I’m excited to continue our partnership.”
Airshare is the ninth-largest U.S. private jet operator, based on fractional and charter flight hours.
It recently expanded its primary service area to cover arrivals and departures for most of Florida.
Executives say it expects to expand the PSA to the Northeast U.S. within the next year.
“We have a special relationship with Patrick, and we’re proud to have him continue representing the Airshare brand,” said Andy Tretiak, Chief Marketing Officer of Airshare.
He added, “His achievements both on and off the field are extraordinary, and helping him balance such a demanding schedule has been rewarding for our entire team. He’s a perfect example of how both leisure and business customers benefit from the comfort and peace of mind while flying private with us.”
The announcement occurs before Airshare’s first year as the Official Private Aviation Partner of Capital One’s The Match.
The 12-hole golf match play event features Mahomes and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs facing off against Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors.
The competition will air live from the Wynn Las Vegas on TNT this Thursday, June 29, at 6:30 p.m. EST.
Airshare will be flying all players to the event to support their sponsorship.
“Airshare is thrilled to be joining the eighth installment of Capital One’s The Match, which has become one of the most highly anticipated golf events every year,” said Tretiak.
He added, “Our sponsorship will provide a great opportunity to increase awareness for the Airshare brand nationwide. While we may have a slight rooting interest, we look forward to a fun night of match-play golf featuring some of the most intense competitors in professional sports.”
