Deirdre Wins iPad Air with SAS

Throughout December 2013, the SAS Advent Calendar offered Irish agents the chance to win spot prizes on selected days during the month, right up until Christmas Eve. Every agent who correctly answered the daily question was also entered into a draw to win an iPad Air 32GB. 

Scandinavian Airlines received a great response from the trade, with six Irish agents receiving spot prizes.

The five prize winners were:

  • Alex McKibbin, Club Travel

  • Carmel Hayes, Strand Travel
  • Liam Higgins, Trailfinders
  • Deirdre O’Hare, Classic Resorts

Alan Sparling, Country Manager for SAS (GSA), said: “We were delighted with the phenomenal response we received from the trade and we hope agents enjoyed the SAS Advent Calendar. We will be back again next year with an even bigger and better incentive.”
