Within the first 20 minutes of the site – www.jet2.com/36 – going live, more than 100,000 people had logged on to try and win one of 10,000 flights being given away in the free ‘Name That View’ competition.
The competition was the second part of a £1m regional giveaway by Jet2.com on its fifth birthday – on Monday 11th February a whole street won free flights, handed out by the Philip Meeson, Jet2.com’s Chief Executive, in a separate competition.
The site had been visited by over half a million people who attempted to match 36 images to their corresponding destinations.
Winners of the competitions can select flights on any one of Jet2.com’s 36 destinations from Leeds Bradford airport including the likes of Avignon, Crete, Cyprus, Geneva, Hamburg, Jersey, La Rochelle, Madrid and Sardinia.
The value of the street giveaway and 10,000 free flight bonanza is well over £1 million and it is believed to be the biggest free giveaway in Yorkshire history.
If you were not lucky enough to take part in the competition do not despair – you can still benefit for great low cost flights from Manchester, Leeds, Blackpool, Belfast Edinburgh and Newcastle with fares from as little as £9.99 one way inc. taxes.
