In previous seasons Rhinos fans have been given the chance to travel to the match aboard the plane chartered by the club.

In 2017, a Ryanair flight carrying Rhinos fans to the Catalans fixture had to make an unscheduled landing in Paris after a supporter fell ill.

The plane left Leeds Bradford heading for Girona in Spain, one of the closest airports to Perpignan.

Medical teams met the aircraft at Paris Beauvais Airport and it continued to Girona.
