Like pie?

Allegiant Air is launching service between Tampa Bay/St.Pete (PIE) and Cincinnati /Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) on Thursday, May 15 and to mark the day the airline is hosting a pie eating contest at the Cincinnati airport.

The winner of the pie eating contest will receive two round trip tickets on the first flight to PIE and a hotel stay at the Postcard Inn from May 15 – May 18, 2014.

To enter the contest, you’ll need to register and get a raffle ticket. Five pie-eating contestants will be drawn from those raffle tickets and the person who eats their pie the fastest will win the contest.

The prize gets awarded right away, and the winner has to be prepared to leave on the inaugural flight to Tampa Bay/St. Pete, departing CVG at 5:25 pm on May 15.

If you’re intent on winning, we suggest you bring along a change of clothes so  you don’t have to board the flight with pie-stains on your shirt.

Full contest rules can be found here.

Monkey spotted at Reno Airport + SFO Contest

Monkey spotted at Reno-Tahoe International Airport

RENO CURIOUS George

About 80 kids and their parents showed up at Reno-Tahoe International Airport on Wednesday for activities in celebration of International Children’s Book Day. (The holiday takes place each year around Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday, which is April 2.)

Everyone listened to an airport fire captain and a police sergeant read Curious George books, learned a little about fire safety, did some dancing, visited with the airport therapy dogs and had some snacks.

Sounds like a great event for an airport!

Fly Irish from SFO contest

SFO DUBLIN

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) now has non-stop service to Dublin via Aer Lingus and is celebrating with a sweepstakes on Facebook.

The “Fly Irish from SFO!” sweepstakes asks participants to vote for one of 17 cities in the Aer Lingus network they would most like to visit. Entries will go into a random drawing and one winner will be awarded two round-trip Economy Class tickets on Aer Lingus to the destination they voted for.

Deadline for entry: April 11, 2014.

Good luck!

Has travel made your life different or better?

Is your life different or better because of where you’ve traveled?

That’s what Alaska Airlines and the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) want to know. And to encourage you to make a short film about that topic, they’re offering prizes of round-trip trip travel for four on Alaska Airlines to any city Alaska Airlines serves, full festival passes to the Seattle International Film Festival and some other perks.

Here are some details about the contest rules – and the prizes:

Films may be anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes long, in any genre from documentary to stop-motion, and must include an Alaska Airlines element (such as website, mobile app, aircraft or other).

Other than that, you’re on your own, although examples of possible themes put forth include those of “experiencing somewhere you’ve never been, experiencing food unique to a destination, enabling travel for those who may never have had the opportunity, experiencing a natural geological phenomenon – and anything that changed you as a result from going from Point A to Point B.”

Three winners will be selected by a panel of representatives from SIFF and Alaska Airlines in these three categories: Critics’ Choice, Best Emerging Filmmaker (18 to 24 years old) and Best Individual Youth Film (to a filmmaker under 18 years old).

Good luck!

AIR NEW ZEALAND HOBBIT

On December 2, Air New Zealand will also be unveiling a Boeing 777-300 aircraft with a special Hobbit film-inspired livery. The plane will start out in Auckland and arrive in Los Angeles in time for the premier of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Perhaps they’ll reprise this Middle Earth briefing video – or offer up something new.

Win a plane with the new Air New Zealand livery

Take a look at the new Air New Zealand livery bearing the New Zealand fern:

ANZ New Livery

Pretty, right?

The new livery is being rolled out across most all of Air New Zealand’s domestic and international aircraft and there’s even a chance to win your own – scale model – version of an Airbus A320 with the design. Download a paper plane version of the plane and follow the instructions for sharing a photo of what you create on Instagram or Twitter.
