An Inverness travel agency has chartered a flight to and from the UEFA European Football Championship this summer.

Spirit Journeys, part of the Travel Trust Association, is offering flights and packages to Scottish football fans, with a private flight departing from Inverness Airport to Munich International Airport on 13 June, returning on 24 June from Stuttgart Airport.

Owner Julia MacLeay said the 162-seat charter is one of the few flights with remaining capacity from Scotland for the tournament. Scotland is set to play three matches in the group stages, against Germany on 14 June, Switzerland on 19 June and Hungary on 23 June.

The agency is offering flight-only; a flight and hotel package with accommodation in Munich, Cologne and Stuttgart; and a flight, hotel and match ticket package with category 3 tickets for each Scotland group game. Packages are also available to those who wish to visit Germany during the summer but not attend the games.

Julia said: “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. While we do have a number of spaces still available across our package options, we expect these will book up quickly.

“Scottish football fans will arrive in the city in plenty of time to see Scotland kick off the tournament against host Germany on 14 June.” 

Local businessman and Inverness BID Board Director Don Lawson, said: “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.”
