ST. JOHN'S, June 22, 2011 /CNW/ - Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism has paired up with WestJet to launch one of the biggest travel giveaways in the province's history. At 12:00 PM Newfoundland Daylight Time (10:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time), 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 (24-hours to some folks). People can enter as many times as they like until the contest closes at noon, NL time (10:30 AM Eastern), June 23.

The 48 Half Hours contest, created by St. John's-based ad agency Target, is a social media event to celebrate Newfoundland and Labrador's unusual half hour time difference.

WestJet's fun-loving, customer-oriented culture is an ideal partnership for Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism as it celebrates the province's creative, spontaneous pace of life.

What else would you expect from a place with its very own time zone?
