The Flight Centre Travel Group invites all South Africans to celebrate our country’s frontline healthcare professionals — who have truly become national heroes during the COVID-19 pandemic — 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,” said Flight Centre Travel Group general manager of product and marketing Sue Garrett.

Zanzibar trip could become reality for four healthcare workers

“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, we could come together to give a total of four healthcare workers a chance to each win an incredible, relaxing trip for two to Zanzibar.”
