On January 21st 2015, RwandAir announced 21 winners who emerged from the WIN Surprises in the Skies promo. The promo winners were chosen by raffle draws carried out at the Rhythm 93.3FM studio for passengers who flew on Rwandair between 1st September and 30th November 2014.
The raffle draw was done in two categories. There was a weekly category in which economy class tickets were won and the monthly category which awarded winners with Home appliances such as refrigerators, plasma TV, Microwave ovens, rechargeable fans and home theatres.
In a ceremony organized by RwandAir at the atrium of Silverbird Galleria in Lagos, the lucky winners were handed their generous prizes in front of a large number of attendees. The airline was also well represented by Mrs Josephine Rurangwa – RwandAir Country Manager in Nigeria as well as several airline staff from the Lagos branch. Members of the press, loyal customers and frequent fliers graced the Event.
The promo which was co-sponsored by RwandAir bankers – Ecobank and in partnership with SilverBird group and associates started initially as a show of appreciation to the airline’s loyal customers situated in Nigeria. It was intended to reward these customers for their loyalty towards the airline, and as a token of gratitude towards the growing business opportunities between the two countries. Indeed, the reaction and participation to the promotion proved to the airline yet again how valuable Lagos and Nigeria are as a destination.
