Hundreds of Concorde Tickets to be Won

Hundreds of people in the UK will win the chance to fly on Concorde before it retires in a competition launched today, Friday July 11.

Each lucky winner will make history as a passenger on a special supersonic farewell tour of the UK, at the end of October.

To win one of the 325 pairs of tickets callers should ring 09069 150 001 and answer a simple question. Each correct answer will then be entered into a prize draw.

The tour will be the last ever chance to watch Concorde fly over the UK and will include visits to Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester and Belfast . During the week of October 20, the supersonic aircraft will visit a different city each day giving thousands of people the chance to see the aircraft and say their own goodbyes.

Competition winners will win a pair of tickets on one leg of the tour, which includes a champagne flight reaching twice the speed of sound over the Bay of Biscay.


Martin George, British Airways director of marketing, said:

” This competition marks the first in a series of events we have planned to ensure that Concorde gets the send off she deserves.

“Concorde is a fantastic aircraft, which means so much to so many people. We want as many people as possible to experience supersonic travel before Concorde retires at the end of October.”

Lines close at midnight on Sunday July 20.
