Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline along with YouTooCanRun Sports Management Pvt Ltd, has announced their partnership to promote fitness through running events across India.
YouTooCanRun, as part of its RACES offering, provides a fully featured workflow and back office support solution. As part of the partnership, Jet Airways will offer registered participants the best fares for that sector, when they sign up for events hosted on the YouTooCanRun RACES platform.
Jet Airways offers this privilege to athletes travelling by air to the race destination, valid from two days preceding and until two days following, the event date. This special fare structure is available to runners immediately after registering for the endurance event on YouTooCanRun platform.
This partnership with YouTooCanRun will ensure that Jet Airways is established as the official ‘Airline Partner’, amongst race organisers, at the former’s running events. This will benefit Race organisers from increased participation in their events. Similarly, registered runners will benefit by getting to participate in more events, while enjoying a five day window at the race destination.
Gaurang Shetty, Whole-time Director, Jet Airways, said, “Jet Airways is happy to promotes sports in India and across the world since it nurtures young talent to achieve the unimaginable and bring glory to the nation. This partnership with YouTooCanRun is another earnest endeavour on our part towards supporting and promoting health and fitness in the country. We are extremely proud to be associated with a premier organisation like YouTooCanRun and sure this initiative will promote a healthy lifestyle amongst people.”
“YouTooCanRun feels privileged that Jet Airways has agreed to join hands with it towards promoting running for good health. It is a win-win situation for all stakeholders in the relationship. Runners will get best fares and event organisers shall witness enhanced prestige for their events,” said Mr P. Venkatraman, Founder of YouTooCanRun.
