Raiders Shield on AirAsia

Paula LehmanCorrespondent IJune 25, 2009

That's right. On your next trip to Asia, take a flight on a Raiders-customized plane. AirAsia has just signed a RM1 million sponsorship deal with the Oakland Raiders, which will slap the Raiders' shield on the tail of the plane.

Random!

AirAsia doesn't even make flights to the US. The company now come under fire for not sponsoring local teams.

The company has promised at least one landing in Oakland to show off it's new plane to fans but other than, it will be a while until we see the planes making regular landings in the States.

Oakland has already signed a contract with Hawaii Airlines and have made the deal with AirAsia non-exclusive, so that sponsorship will stand.

Well, congrats Raider Nation. Looks like our piggy bank is overflowing so we can finally write up those expensive contracts and get some of this year's major talent on the field.
