Here’s a great opportunity for family and travel bloggers interested in getting more plugged in to the media world and -cough- be entered to win two return flights to Asia from AirAsia.
Sir Richard Branson lost a bet with Tony Fernandes, CEO of AirAsia Group some time last year. Consequently, on Sunday 1st May he has agreed to become an AirAsia flight attendant for a charity flight and allow the highest bidder to shave his legs in front of the world’s media and guests. Not only that but Alexandra Burke is going to be performing. I’ll be there with Lulu from @FamilyAffairs at the media press conference and a Q&A forum at the event. In addition, a number of competition winners will be chosen at the event by Tony Fernandez and each given two return flights from a selection of AirAsia flights in May – (returning in June will be fine). AirAsia is the leading low-cost carrier in Asia and has around 150 routes covering destinations in Asia, Australia and Europe. The event is taking place at Stansted airport (there’s transport arranged from Liverpool Street Station in London leaving at 10:30 am, but of course you can make your own way there).
When: Sunday 1 May
Where: Stansted Airport
What: To see Richard Branson shave his legs, listen to Alexandra Burke and possibly win tickets to your choice of destination in Asia
LOTS of other details to follow, including the terms and conditions (watch the Family Affairs blog and this space for more details). But get your entry in for a chance to nab a place on the bus and be part of the media contingent on the day. It is open to any bloggers – travel/student/life/geriatric/weird/you get the picture.
Here’s what to do:
2. RT Lulu’s blog post link and post a comment (via her blog Family Affairs and Other Matters) telling why you need two return airline tickets next month to one of AirAsia’s many destinations. Also, let Lulu know if you can come to the media event to collect the tickets.
3. Like AirAsia’s Facebook page.
THAT’S IT! For those of you who can’t make it – don’t despair, there will be a chance to win further airline tickets in October and I am hoping to run a competition to find “the best of” blog posts in travel for that one. Watch this space.
