Lufthansa is flying the German team. For the first flight FRA-GDN they used their new 747-8i. All other flights are also operated by LH but I haven't figured out which plane type they are using.

The Irish team flew out to their training base in Italy before the tournament on Cello Aviations BAE 146 G-RAJJ, I presume they used the same aircraft during the tournament & for the return journey.

I did some further research on the internet:

Greece: Aegean Airlines A32x
England: Titan Airways 757-200
France: Boeing 737 (still have to figure out the owner, a/c is mostly white with lines in different shades of blue on the tail)

Are the planes kept in Poland/Ukraine for exclusive use by the teams, or flown back home to do other charter work?

For example, the England team have had to buy from Krakov to the Ukraine for each of their games, so the plane is needed a day before the game then on the day itself, then isn't needed for 3 days.



it's the bus to stansted (now renamed national express a4 to ruin my username)

From the video you posted it looks as if the French team arrived on an aircraft belonging too the "European Aviation Group"

The Danish team had SAS MD87 (OY-KHU) "Ravn Viking" stationed with them. The text: ”Denmark - UEFA EURO 2012 National Team” was on the side.

I found out all LH flight have flight numbers 342 and 343 (though not equipment type  ). They were all operated by B737-300 or B737-500, except for the first flight.

These are the flights from FRA to GDN and back (mostly without the team):

Sweden used this plane.
http://capishe.se/nyhet/svenska-fotbollslandslaget-far-nytt-flygplan/

At least painted for them. this is the second version of Swedish football planes, the previous looked better in my humble opinion. Scroll down on the same site and you can compare for yourselves.

Think its telling that Denmark use SK while Sweden doesnt. Sweden use Malmö Aviation...
