South African Airways has officially announced the winners of the SAA “Hey Baby look at us now!” competition, which ended on September 16, 2002. Winners’ names were drawn on September 20, 2002 at SAA’s Sydney and Perth headquarters.
Travel agents across Australia were given the opportunity to win a trip for two to Johannesburg by correctly matching adult photographs of SAA’s new team with the corresponding baby pictures and submitting their entries to their local SAA office.
Clive Busch of Au Revoir Travel, Mt Lawley WA, and Nicolle Barratt of Brittania Travel, Beecroft NSW each won the grand prize of a return trip for two to Johannesburg.
Jeff Naylor, Commercial Manager for SAA Australia, believes that there’s no better way to introduce the team to the industry especially with the opening of the new offices in Melbourne and Brisbane. He was amazed and highly amused by the entries SAA received.
“With the recent growth of our team and expansion of our offices to new locations, we decided to break the news and introduce ourselves to our business partners in a fun way.
“The response nationwide was excellent and exceeded our expectations, though looking at the entries, it was interesting to see how many of our staff actually could’ve easily have been switched at birth!” said Mr Naylor.
South African Airways currently flies non-stop from Sydney to Johannesburg four times a week and four times a week from Perth. Fares are seasonal and surcharges apply so please contact SAA or your travel agent for more information.
