Villa channel AVTV strike video deal with Air France

Villa have struck a lucrative video deal with Air France.

The AVTV show 'Inside Aston Villa' will be screened to passengers on Air France, which is now the largest European airline flying to South America.

'Inside Aston Villa' will be on a three-month cycle in May, June and July.

That means that fans travelling to the World Cup in Brazil will get to see claret and blue content before and after the prestigious football tournament.

This season already, five airlines, including All Nippon, Malaysia Airlines, Jet Airways and China Airlines, have shown claret and blue content.

This is a figure that is likely to keep climbing.

The show, lasting half-an-hour and produced by the marketing and communications team in-house here at Villa Park, includes our exclusive Tom Hanks interview, a feature on Stiliyan Petrov as well as archive highlights including the 1957 FA Cup final.

Russell Jones, head of marketing at Villa, said: "We're thrilled because this is a significant deal for Villa and AVTV.

"Air France are a major company in the airline business and to work with them is a big step forward for our club and our video product.

"Air France fly daily to Brazil - as the largest European airline travelling to South America - which means that fans heading to the World Cup can get their football fix on the way there and on the way back."

You can enjoy AVTV for £4.99 per month or £44.99 for the year - sign up today here.
