Habana challenges public to race British Airways A380

To celebrate the launch of British Airways A380 direct flights to Johannesburg from London Heathrow, British Airways is offering five members of the public from around the world with a once in a lifetime opportunity, to race the A380 super jumbo on the runway in South Africa in early February 2014.

The #ManVsPlane contest on follows last year’s smash hit viral video featuring South African Springboks and Toulon rugby legend Bryan Habana, race British Airways’ new A380.

Habana said: “In 2013, I raced British Airways new A380 aircraft and won.

“Now, it’s your turn to accept the challenge.

“Participants need to be physically fit and have the strength, stamina and speed to beat the plane to the finish line.”

To be in with a chance of winning a place in the race, visit the official site between now and Monday January 20th, 2014 and fulfil the entry requirements.

Five winners will be selected to fly to South Africa next month with British Airways.
The runner with the quickest time on the day will win two business class return tickets on one of British Airways’ A380 flights to London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong or Johannesburg.

From February 12th, 2014, British Airways will fly its new A380 between the airline’s award winning home base of London Heathrow Terminal 5 and Johannesburg.

Bryan Habana has amassed 95 caps and has scored 53 test tries along the way, establishing himself as the Springboks’ all time leading try scorer and one of the most prolific finishers in the game.
