COLUMBIA, MD, March 3 /CNW/ - To celebrate Icelandair's upcoming service
from Toronto, a gaggle of staff and actors dressed as swans have descended on
Toronto Pearson International Airport. The swans are based in Terminal 1 from
March 3 - 9 from noon until 6 pm and provide a chance for airport customers to
win a deluxe trip to Iceland on Icelandair's inaugural flight, May 2, 2008.
To enter to win, the customer must get his or her photo taken with one of
the swans. Each photo will then be posted at www.icelandair.ca/photocontest,
where voting on the best photo will take place until 5 pm EST on March 14. The
photo with the most votes will be declared the winning entry. The winner will
receive a deluxe trip on Icelandair's inaugural flight with five friends that
includes: round-trip airfare from Toronto to Reykjavik, four nights deluxe
accommodations, a horseback riding tour, a day trip to Iceland's natural
wonders like waterfalls, a black sand beach and a glacier, and a relaxing day
soaking in the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon.
The departure of the swans will herald the start of A Taste of Iceland
Week in Toronto from March 10 - 16. The event will highlight Icelandic
cuisine, music, film and culture at numerous venues throughout the city.
