Help families reunite this Ramadan
Lufthansa’s online campaign asks public to nominate friends who wish to be back home with their loved ones
Lufthansa German Airlines is calling on all caring souls this Ramadan to nominate a friend or colleague who they think would love to be reunited with their family. From June 25 to August 09, the public can nominate and vote via www.lufthansa-ramadan2013.com. Lufthansa will provide the 10 nominees with the most votes with free tickets to fly them back home.
“The world is connected and it should be a simple thing to travel from one destination to another. But sometimes, for people who are overseas it’s not always so easy. At Lufthansa, we believe everyone should be able to spend time with the people they love, and we can help make the world a smaller, happier place. That’s why this Ramadan, Lufthansa is taking the initiative to encourage people to see and do something good for others,” said Carsten Schaeffer, Lufthansa Vice President, Sales and Services for Southeast Europe, Middle East and Africa. “It is rewarding to help. So, join the campaign and play an important role in supporting someone to reunite with their loved ones.”
Anyone from the United Arab Emirates can nominate someone they know through www.lufthansa-ramadan2013.com anytime during the campaign period. Once the nominated person consents to being part of the initiative, voting then begins. Deadline to vote is on 09 August 2013, at 23:59 UAE time.
The 10 people with the highest number of votes will get to fly to their families via Lufthansa German Airlines. The top three will fly Business Class while the remaining seven will travel Economy Class. Terms and conditions apply.
