We’re super excited about our inaugural flight to Vancouver. Richard Branson will be hosting our big Vancouver party and if there’s one thing Richard knows, it’s how to have a good time!
He also has a spare seat for a social media-savvy someone who can tell us why they would really LOVE to visit Vancouver. You may have a special someone you’re desperate to catch up with, dream of seeing a spectacular Vancouver vista or visit a particular place close to your heart. And you’ll be keen to share all your exploits with your YouTube fans, or the followers of your blog or any other social channel.
To get your hands on Richard’s last seat, you must tweet to persuade us why it NEEDS to be you. You can do this however you like; by video, blog, tweet or post, but be creative! Then tweet a link to @virginatlantic and use the hashtag #WhyYVR so we can find you. We are interested in you and your story, so don’t forget to tell us a little about yourself as well as your motivation for entering.
You must be able to travel from London on the official trip departing London on the 24th May for three nights. We are sending out invitations on 10th of May, so all submissions must be received by midnight Wednesday 9th May, 2012.
You must tell us in a tweet why you love Vancouver and include the hashtag #WhyYVR
If a tweet just isn’t enough to express your love, you can share a photo, create a video, write a blog post or some interesting tweets to convey your story – bonus points for additional creativity and online influence!
Follow @VirginAtlantic so we can DM you if you win!
You must send your submission by midnight British time on Wednesday 9th May, 2012.
Get ready to go! You must be able to travel from London on the official trip departing 24th May and landing back 28th May.
Note: The offer is not restricted to UK recipients, but any international recipient would need to arrange their own transport to London (or even meet us in Vancouver) and ensure they have the necessary documentation to enter both the United Kingdom and/or Canada.
Just in case you were wondering, YVR is the Vancouver airport IATA code #avgeeks!
From 24th May Virgin Atlantic will operate seasonal flights to Vancouver from London Heathrow on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. You’ll always find the best fares on our website.
