Lazio’s new personalized Boeing 737-300 Classic cost the Roman side €700 thousand for one year, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano-based newspaper Corriere della Sera.
The report details how president Claudio Lotito reached an agreement with Bulgarian-Sicilian airline Tayaranjet on the basis of €700 thousand for 12 months. The Biancocelesti paid €150 thousand for the detail work and colours on the aircraft, and another €150 thousand to get it up to scratch; the agreement between these two companies was reached after about a month of talks, facilitated by mutual friends.
The Boeing 737-300 Classic in question, registered LZ-TYR, took off for the first time in November 1991, 29 years ago, under the Lufthansa brand, the report continues. It was repainted with the Biancocelesti theme in Ireland, at the company hangar of International Aerospace Coatings.
It will cost Lazio €30 thousand to use for each trip in Italy and around €40-50 thousand when used for European travel.
