Flybe has sponsored Norwich City for the past two seasons

Low-cost airline Flybe is to end its sponsorship deal with Norwich City after two years.

The Canaries have worn the company's logo on their shirts since 2005, but the contract is not being extended beyond its initial period.

Flybe has recently cut the number of flights it operates from Norwich International Airport.

The Carrow Road club has confirmed that the search for a new main sponsor is already well underway.

Andrew Cullen, the club's director of sales and marketing said: "We are grateful to Flybe for their assistance in promoting the club to prospective new shirt sponsors."

Flybe has sponsored several football clubs including Birmingham City, Southampton and Exeter City, and the company's director of marketing Simon Lilley said that policy would continue.

"We have had to take the difficult descision to step down as the main club sponsor so our other club sponsorships across the UK are given the opportunity to take over the mantle," he said.
