BA Competition winners tickets give away!

Hi guys and girls, thanks so much to everyone who entered my amazing competition with British Airways. We launched it on the 25 Oct and decided to let it run longer than we planned as there was soo much interest. In October I went on my first BAi360 flight and then a mystery trip with British Airways to a hot location in Europe, which I found out on the day was Paphos, Cyprus. The best bit was, I also had a pair of BA Club Europe tickets to the same European location that I flew to, to win and 10 x BA i360 tickets. Which my youtube video below to see if you are one of the lovely winners:

British Airways i360 is the world’s tallest moving observation tower: a 162-metre-tall vertical tower with a fully enclosed futuristic glass observation pod that lifts groups of up to 200 passengers to a height of 138 metres. The BA i360 offers 360-degree views of up to 26-miles over Brighton and Hove, the South Downs, the South Coast and the English Channel.

Gatwick Winter Sun

British Airways network from Gatwick is comprised predominantly of leisure/holiday destinations. Many of these are great year-round destinations owing to their pleasant climate and temperatures. These are accessible in as little as just over 4 hours for a trip to the Canary Islands.

There are a range of destinations available, with different trip types to choose from. They are all warm destinations, however not all need to be a stereotypical beach break. There’s still plenty of scope for activities, sightseeing, partying or of course relaxing.
