Travelocity and Virgin Atlantic Airways to Fly Two Lucky Travelers to London During Royal Wedding

SOUTHLAKE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It is official: The Travelocity Roaming Gnome® has booked his flights to London, on Virgin Atlantic Airways, for the royal wedding. He and his friends at Virgin Atlantic have teamed up to offer two lucky travelers a trip to London to experience the excitement of the city during this historic occasion.

“Best Premium Economy Class in the World”

Today through March 31, 2011, participants can enter to win a regal London getaway for two, including roundtrip flights from one of the Virgin Atlantic US gateways to London*, in its luxurious Upper Class cabin, plus a four-night hotel stay at The Kensington Hotel. Travel dates are April 27 – May 2, 2011. To enter contestants should log onto http://tvly.com/royalwedding.

“London will be bubbling with excitement in late April and we’re thrilled to have teamed up with Virgin Atlantic for this special time,” said Andrew Donkin, senior vice president, global marketing and media, Travelocity. “London has always been one of our most popular international destinations and we can’t wait to see what kind of fun the Roaming Gnome and the winners have.”

Chris Rossi, Senior Vice President, North America, Virgin Atlantic added, “The royal wedding is creating a lot of excitement in the US and we have seen an increase in bookings during the week of the wedding festivities. This valuable partnership will enable Virgin Atlantic to showcase our luxurious service in Upper Class, and private security channel. As the US is the largest inbound market for the UK, we hope the royal wedding will help to inspire a whole new generation of travelers to visit Britain.”

During the flight to London, the sweepstakes winners will enjoy a flight that’s fit for a king or queen with the award-winning Upper Class cabin where they will experience fully flat beds, an onboard bar and the flexible Freedom Menu.
