Sports journalist Bolarinwa Olajide (@iambolar) has emerged winner of the “#FlyLufthansaToRussia” contest with an all- expense paid trip to Russia from 24th – 28th June 2018. The popular social media influencer competed with tourism expert, Chiamaka Obuekwe (@socialprefect) and Nigerian comedian, Nosa Afolabi (@lasisielenu) to win the Lufthansa Premium Economy ticket and more to Russia.
“We say a big Thank You to all who voted in our “#FlyLufthansaToRussia” contest and of course to our three amazing social media personalities”, says Adenike Macaulay, Lufthansa Group, Sales Products and Programs Lead for Sub-Sahara Africa.
Bolarinwa Olajide who won with over 1.9k public votes expressed his excitement of being a part of the global experience in Russia via Lufthansa: According to him “Flying with Lufthansa was beyond what I expected the experience will be. I had a wonderful experience and still processing the excitement in my head. I must also say that I enjoyed using Lufthansa Flynet.
"And concern my experience in Russia, I had fun meeting fans from different countries wearing the Nigerian jerseys, visiting iconic places in Saint Petersburg, and the Trinity Bridge was an emotional one for me as I have never seen a bridge open and close at specific times of the day. A bridge that detaches itself is just wow. Most fans in the country are always ready to relate with other fans. Thank you @Lufthansa for the opportunity I have no choice but to always #SayYesTotheWorld.”
Lufthansa offers daily flights from Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt via Frankfurt to over 200 destinations in Europe, USA, Canada and beyond.
