CHICAGO, May 15, 2012 – United Airlines has launched its 2012 Team USA sponsorship effort with the “Fly Me to London” Sweepstakes, offering three grand-prize winners the chance to cheer on the U.S. Olympic Team with two roundtrip tickets to London, hotel accommodations and entry to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
In recognition of the 17-day Olympic Games and United’s 17 daily nonstop flights to London, 17 first-place winners will receive two roundtrip tickets to anywhere United flies in the United States.
Participants may enter for a chance to win by visiting united.com/flymetolondon or United’s Facebook page before May 30, 2012, clicking the menu and claiming a “virtual seat” onboard one of United’s 17 daily nonstop flights to London. Participants will not be booked on an actual flight; instead, United will automatically enter participants into the random drawing.
Participants may also invite others to enter for a chance to win by sharing the sweepstakes on Facebook or posting a tweet on Twitter. For each friend who enters in response to the invitation, participants will receive one additional entry into the drawing. Participants can submit a new entry each day of the 17-day sweepstakes with a maximum of 10 entries per person, per day.
At the conclusion of the sweepstakes, United will select three grand-prize-winning “virtual seat” entries and 17 first-prize winners from the drawing.
“As the official airline of Team USA, United is proud to have flown our U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes to and from training, competitions, Trials and the Olympic Games for the past 32 years,” said Mark Bergsrud, senior vice president of marketing. “’The Fly Me to London’ Sweepstakes offers customers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share in the excitement of the upcoming London 2012 Olympic Games and cheer on Team USA to victory.”
