New Gatwick Airport routes to be celebrated with snowball fight

Tue, 29 Sep, 2009

New flights from Gatwick Airport with Aer Lingus are to be marked with a snowball fight in London by the company.

Three hundred people will gather in Potters Field Park, near Tower Bridge, for the event on Wednesday September 30th 2009 at lunchtime.

The specially selected recruits have been awarded two return flights from Gatwick Airport for taking part in the event after they were chosen from more than 1,500 applicants.

Enda Corneille, Aer Lingus corporate affairs director, said: "What better way to celebrate our new winter sun destinations than transforming central London into a winter scene that would rival Lapland."

The event will mark the launch of the company's six new winter routes from Gatwick Airport.

From October 25th 2009 the Irish airline will be flying to Tenerife, Lanzarote, Bucharest, Warsaw, Eindhoven and Vilnius.

As well as flying to European destinations from Gatwick, Aer Lingus operates routes to Ireland from Heathrow, Birmingham Airport and Manchester Airport.
