Irish Worldcup 747 Charter-which Airline?

Thu Aug 08, 2002 8:16 am

Having read an article about an Irish footballer in a Sunday magazine, mention was made of a supporters charter, a 747 from Dublin to Tokyo on 29 may 2002. The travel agent was Slattery's Travel and the aircraft made a stop in Stockholm (Transjet......?)Does anyone know more about this?

The charter I am talking about was for Irish fans and not the team. The footballer (presumably for promotional purposes) aboard was an old Irish International and not part of the World cup team. The plane definitely went via Stockholm.

Air Atlanta Iceland or Transjet 742 I believe.
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!
