Win one of 48 round trips to Newfoundland and Labrador in just 48 half hours

20 Jun 2011

Mark your calendars and set your watches to the half hour.

On June 22, at 12:00 PM NDT (10:30 AM EDT), Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism is pairing up with WestJet to launch a major travel contest.

We’re celebrating our quirky, unique half hour time zone by giving people the chance to win one of 48 free round-trip flights to NL in just 48 half hours (that’s 24 hours to some folks). People can enter as many times as they like each and every half hour until noon, NL time, June 23.

The contest will be hosted exclusively through Facebook.

What else would you expect from a place with its very own time zone?

To enter the 48 Half Hours contest on June 22 visit Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism’s Facebook page and click on the 48 Half Hours tab to the left of the wall feed.

The 48 Half Hours contest is only open to Canadian residents.
