Kelowna Airport offers contest Europe vacation prize

With one short connection, flying from Kelowna International Airport (YLW) to Europe is easy and convenient.

On Saturday, April 30,  between noon and 4 p.m., display booths for airlines, travel agencies and travel groups promoting European travel destinations will be on display in the airport terminal.

The public can learn about flight specials, Mediterranean cruises, accommodation options and exchanging your currency into pounds and Euros.

And if that’s not reason enough to attend, YLW is giving away two European vacations:

Prize #1: Tickets for two to London, England. Win airfare for two on Air Canada and fly from Kelowna to London’s Heathrow Airport. In addition the lucky winner will receive £500 and free local airport parking while they’re away.

There are three ways to enter for this prize package: Tweet @ylwkelowna using the hash tag #YLW2LHR and write in 140 characters or less why you deserve to fly from YLW to LHR on Air Canada. Or, say in the same 140 characters or less on Facebook ylw.kelownaairport. Remember to use #YLW2LHR—and don’t forget to ‘Like’ the airport if you haven’t already. Or, enter your name at the event on April 30, between noon and 3:45 p.m.

Prize #2: Experience one week in Paris, France, with Air Transat. The lucky winner and guest will enjoy free airport parking at YLW, return airfare and airport/hotel transfers and one week stay at the Hotel Le Royal in Paris. Airfare will be provided for two from Kelowna to Vancouver or Calgary where you will catch your non-stop flight on Air Transat to Paris.

The only way to enter this prize is to be a daily qualifier on radio station Q103.1.
