MEMPHIS, TN – As part of its celebration of Allegiant Air’s inaugural Memphis flights, the Memphis International Airport will host a news conference at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 22. The news conference will take place on the mezzanine level above the A ticketing lobby. Representatives from MEM and Allegiant will be on hand, and City of Memphis Mayor A C Wharton Jr. and Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell Jr. have also been confirmed for the event.
The big highlight of Friday’s event will be a “Pack Your Bags” contest in which contestants will have a chance to win same-day trips to either Orlando or Las Vegas, or a May 29 trip to Ft. Lauderdale. Those entering the same-day giveaways should come to the airport packed and ready to depart. Contestants will be able to register for the contest between noon and 1:30 pm at registration tables near the Allegiant ticketing counter. One entry will be allowed per person and registrants will only be able to participate in one destination drawing. The prize drawings will take place at 2 p.m. and will mark the beginning of the news conference. Allegiant Air is providing two roundtrip tickets for each winner, and hotels at each destination are providing three days of accommodations. Contest rules can be found at www.mscaa.com/packyourbags.
Following the news conference, media will have the opportunity to be escorted to gate B5 to get footage of the plane’s departure. Please bring proper identification in order to go through security. Media vehicles can park in the upper outer commercial drive outside the ticketing level.
