ST. JOHN'S, June 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism is
pairing up with WestJet to launch one of the biggest travel contests in
the province's history. At 12:00 PM Newfoundland Daylight Time (10:30
AM Eastern Daylight Time), Wednesday, June 22, the 48 Half Hours
contest will launch online via Facebook, giving people across Canada a
chance to win one round-trip flight every half hour for a non-stop 48
half-hour period (that's 24-hours to some folks). People can enter as
many times as they like until the contest closes at noon, NDT time
(10:30 AM EDT), June 23.
The 48 Half Hours contest, created by St. John's-based ad agency Target,
is a celebration of Newfoundland and Labrador's unusual half hour time
Having our own time zone, half an hour ahead of everyone else, is more
than a product of the province's geography. It's an unusual, compelling
part of this place and its just one of the many differences that makes
Newfoundland and Labrador such a unique destination. What else would
you expect from a place with its very own time zone?
WestJet's fun-loving, customer-oriented culture is an ideal partnership
for Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism.
"There are so many unexpected things to discover in Newfoundland and
Labrador," says Terry French, Minister of Tourism, Culture and
Recreation, "We embrace those differences that make us unique - like
our time zone - and we always strive to offer travellers something
unexpected. We're hoping people will jump on board and enter as many
times as they can throughout the 48 half-hour period. We're also
counting on Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to be ambassadors,
spreading the word, online, to all their friends and family."
Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador can enter to win, but the flights
must be used to bring people from away into the province for a visit.
To enter the 48 Half Hours contest on June 22 visit Newfoundland and
