Clemson & Nicholas Air Announce Agreement

Private Aviation Expert NICHOLAS AIR Commits to Multi-Year Integrated Agreement

CLEMSON, S.C. (November 3, 2023) – Clemson University Athletics announced the addition of NICHOLAS AIR to the Clemson Tigers corporate partner family. The deal was facilitated by Clemson Athletics’ in-house sponsorship/multimedia rights division.

The multi-year agreement marks the first private aviation category sponsorship for Clemson, as NICHOLAS AIR will assume the “Official Private Aviation Partner of the Tigers” designation. The sponsorship launches with the current 2023-24 college athletics season.

NICHOLAS AIR, known for providing the highest quality fleet and customer service experience in private air travel, was founded in 1997. In that time, it has become the preferred private aviation partner of The Most Refined Set of Private Flyers, all who recognize the company’s commitment to operating the newest aircraft in the market, flown by the best pilots in the industry, and backed by a world-class service culture.

“Our brand has long been associated with aligning ourselves with the best in any business,” says Founder/CEO, Nicholas Correnti. “Clemson’s pedigree as a championship athletics heritage, combined with a world-class educational institution, aligns incredibly well with our own company’s values and standard for excellence. Clemson’s passionate fanbase has shown a great appreciation for NICHOLAS AIR’s dedication to quality and service standards and together, we become a winning combination for those wanting the very best option to follow the Tigers throughout the year.”

As part of its Tiger sponsorship, NICHOLAS AIR will receive significant brand visibility through in-venue signage at Memorial Stadium, social and digital exposure through official Clemson Athletics’ platforms, and impactful fan connections across the Clemson community. It also has use of approved Clemson marks and will have prominent exposure through the IPTAY community over the years.

“We’re excited to welcome NICHOLAS AIR to the close-knit Clemson Tigers corporate partner family,” said Clemson Athletics Corporate Partnerships President, Kyle Caddell. “Clemson fans, alumni, and donors have long been recognized as some of the most passionate and dedicated followers of their teams not only at home but also on the road and across the country, so NICHOLAS AIR is a natural fit to align with and serve our fans and loyal alumni in the highest manner.”

NICHOLAS AIR, headquartered in Oxford, Miss., owns and operates one of the largest fleets of Phenom 100, CJ3+, Phenom 300E, Citation Latitude, and Challenger 350 aircraft, making them available anywhere in North America with as little as 24 hours’ notice. The aircraft, which have an average age of under five years, are backed by a renowned reputation for world-class customer service standards that extends from the Members Services staff and out to the flight line. For over 25 years, NICHOLAS AIR has been the home of the Most Refined Set of Private Flyers and now, the Official Private Aviation Partner of the Clemson Tigers.
