Stunning aerial images of the Old Trafford grounds have been captured from the skies.

Russian Airline Aeroflot as part of its sponsorship with Manchester United took the images as part of their ‘Top Flight’ campaign which will see the airline create unique fan experiences across the world.

In the photos the Aeroflot logo is pictured clearly next to the grounds to display the partnership between the two companies.

The Russian airline became Manchester United’s official Carrier in July replacing Turkish Airlines and as part of the lucrative deal provides advice on travel arrangements for the team as well as charter services on the Airbus and Boeing airplanes.

Manchester United’s group managing director, Richard Arnold, told Sky Sports: “This announcement marks the club’s first commercial venture in Russia, an expanding market we are keen to explore further.

“The club has close to 18million followers in Russia, demonstrating the partnerships potential audience in the country.

“Aeroflot is celebrating its 90th birthday this year, but has already impressed us with its youthful energy as one of the youngest fleets in Europe.”

Aeroflot with its partners provides service to more than 1,000 destinations in 178 countries and offers the shortest route between Europe and Asia via Moscow.
