Etihad Airways launches Manchester City treasure hunt

Etihad Airways has today announced the launch of a social media promotion in Manchester for a chance to get up close and personal with the Capital One Cup and win a trip to Abu Dhabi, the airline’s home city.

The air carrier has teamed up with Manchester Airport and Manchester City FC to invite participants to #EtihadHunt on April 18th 2014.

Participants will need to sign up on an app on Facebook and on Good Friday will be given clues that will lead them to three secret locations in Manchester.

At each stage they’ll be asked to complete a task and those that succeed will go into a draw to win a holiday to Abu Dhabi.

Clive Wratten, UK general manager, Etihad Airways, said: “Manchester is an important destination for Etihad Airways, and it’s great to work with such excellent partners such as Manchester City FC and Manchester Airport.

“We would like to urge as many people to take part as possible, and have some extra fun in Manchester.”
