Low fares airline Jet2.com is launching a competition offering 20,000 free return flights.
The airline, which has its headquarters at Leeds Bradford airport, will give away the free flights to the first people to correctly name all 45 of its destinations after the competition starts at 12 noon on January 30th.
What a fantastic way to start the year - we are bringing some sunshine cheer to the region with free return flights to one of our spectacular European destinations, says Jet2.com boss, Philip Meeson.
This is truly our biggest ever free competition and, with 20,000 free flights worth more than £2,000,000, we believe its the biggest ever free competition giveaway in the regions history, Meeson continues.
January can often be a gloomy month but with this competition we are hoping to bring smiles to the faces of people across the region. With an array of fantastic destinations to choose from, our winners could be sipping cocktails on a sun-drenched beach or taking in some culture on a fun-packed city break before they know it!, he adds.
The free return flights include all taxes and charges and can be chosen to any of Jet2.coms 45 destinations. The airline flies from six airports in the UK: Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle, Blackpool, Edinburgh and Belfast International.
Last year when the airline announced a similar competition more than 100,000 people logged on within 20 minutes, so this year extra server capacity has been introduced to ensure everyone has the chance to win.
Jet2.com has also announced that it will continue flights to three of its most popular destinations next winter. Due to overwhelming customer demand flights to Tenerife, Lanzarote and Sharm el Sheikh will feature in the winter 2009/10 schedule and are on sale now.
Flights to Tenerife and Lanzarote from Blackpool, Leeds Bradford and Manchester airports start from £68.99 one way including all taxes. Flights to Sharm el Sheikh from Leeds Bradford airport are priced from £67.99 one way.
