This has been quite the week for travel-related contests. First, WOW air is looking to pay two best friends to travel the world and tell about it. Then TPG posted an open call for the best internship ever. (Hint: It involves PUPPIES.)
But South African airline kulula airways is taking the concept of contests to new heights with its “Face on a Plane” campaign, open until April 30, which is giving away round-trip tickets for contest winners… as well as the opportunity to have their faces blown up to 40 feet across, and plastered onto one of six Boeing 737s.
“You’re not just a pretty face, are you?” states the cheeky copy on the budget carrier’s contest page. “Do you have a face that reaches for the skies? And when you come face-to-face with fame, are you ready to enter the game? kulula.com is calling on all the poker faces, funny faces, fresh faces, long faces and those who simply just want to be in your face to enter the Travel Hater, Face on a Plane competition.”
Six winners will be selected from among the eligible contest entrants, based on the “funniest, silliest and wackiest faces submitted.” Each winner will receive two round-trip tickets in order to enjoy the experience of seeing their face adorning the sides of one of kulula’s Boeing 737s. The unique livery won’t be out of place among kulula’s fleet, however – the airline prides itself on its “wacky paint schemes” including the ‘cow’ plane, ‘camo’ plane and the ‘flying 101′ plane. kulula codeshares flights with Kenya Airways, Air France and Etihad over 14 routes, operating more than 400 flights a week.
As of the time of this post, kulula’s contest page was down – presumably because the sheer volume of contest entries shut down the site. We’ll just be over here, refreshing the page.
