The Flight Centre Travel Group invites all South Africans to celebrate our national heroes, by nominating a healthcare worker to stand a chance to win a holiday in Zanzibar. 

“During this global pandemic, South Africa’s healthcare professionals have placed their lives on the line to keep us all safe,” says Sue Garrett from Flight Centre Travel Group.

“It’s a Flight Centre tradition each year to send out a fun April Fool’s Day communication but this year we wanted to do things a little differently. While there is no way we can adequately say thank you to every one of our healthcare workers for their selfless acts of service during this global crisis, we wanted to do what we could.”

Thanks to Mango Airlines, Zanzibar Tourism and Fumba Beach Lodge, the Flight Centre Travel Group and their partners have managed to come together to give four healthcare workers a chance to each win this incredible, relaxing trip for two to Zanzibar.

If you have an inspirational stories of healthcare workers who have gone beyond their call of duty caring for COVID-19 patients – be it a paramedic, a nurse, a doctor or a medical staff – this is chance to nominate them by entering the competition on FCTG’s website.

Four South African healthcare workers could win a trip for two to Zanzibar including return flights from Johannesburg on Mango Airlines, four nights’ accommodation at Fumba Beach Lodge, including breakfast and dinner daily and return transfers from the airport to the hotel in Zanzibar.
