Residents on the Isle of Man were asked to put their local knowledge to the test this week as the British Airways island challenge took off.

The airline teamed up with 3FM Radio for a unique treasure hunt to promote the return British Airways flights between the Isle of Man and London City Airport.

Cabin crew member Mercedesz Szasz was pictured at several iconic locations on the island which featured on the radio’s website and social media sites throughout the day and listeners had to correctly identify where she was.

As well as the chance to win flights the top prize was return flights to London City, a stay at the Westbury Hotel in Mayfair and dinner at the famous Boisdale Restaurant in Canary Wharf.

Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer said: “We had a fantastic two days visiting some of the most beautiful parts of the Isle of Man. We visited local travel agents and also had fun with the radio station testing people’s local knowledge.

“The Isle of Man-London City route is very important to us and we always welcome the opportunity to get involved with the local community to promote the flights.”
