British Airways has joined the growing list of leading worldwide businesses to fly the flag for Chip and Spin after agreeing to distribute the UK’s newest golf consumer magazine to its passengers across the globe.

Last month, publishers Get Noticed Ltd agreed an annual deal for the title to be made available to passengers in the first-class lounges of airlines including Virgin Atlantic, Emirates, Cathay Pacific, American Airways, Air France, US Airways, KLM, BMI and FlyBe.

As well as Chip and Spin being available for passengers to read in the airline’s lounges at Heathrow and Gatwick, the title will also be on board British Airways‘ Club World outbound routes to its many worldwide destinations.

David Grahame, project manager for Chip and Spin, said, “The deal we have agreed with BA will see 5,000 copies a month of our magazine being distributed to them which is a significant amount.”

Chip and Spin, which retails for £3.25 at more than 250 driving ranges across the UK and at all Nevada Bob’s golf retail outlets, is now carried by 19 international airlines. It is also distributed to every UK golf club and selected clubs throughout Spain and Portugal and can be subscribed to online for just £2 per month.

Get Noticed Ltd, the UK’s largest golf media contractor based in Cheshire, launched Chip and Spin in April and has been inundated with enquiries about the company’s flagship title.

Grahame added, “Chip and Spin has caught everyone’s attention in its first three months. Some of the biggest names in golf have come on board with us since and we are determined for that trend to continue in the coming months.”
